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
Here's a model to get you started.
