    Quenching Evaluation in Simulation

    Lesley Ott

      Is anyone aware of a method to evaluate a quenching problem in SolidWorks Simulation. I have the heat transger package.

          You can use transient thermal simulation.

          -> Simulation -> Study -> Thermal

          -> Right Click on study -> Properties -> Options -> Transient

          -> Right Click Thermal Loads -> Temperature -> Select the entire solid body (This is tricky, turn on the "Filter Solid Bodies" option)

          -> Put your pre-quench temperature on this body

          -> Put some nominal convection on the surface of the body to get a feel for how it runs, then refine

          -> Run




          Here's a model to get you started.
