I am very new at using solidworks for stress testing and for flow analysis.
I currently have a school project and am trying to run this through a stress test and flow analysis. I feel like some of my issues may be related to the fact that its a large assembly, I think some of the may be remedied by saving it out as a part file
In the flow analysis I am dealt an error stating "fluid volume recognition has failed. please check the geometry"
I believe it is due to having 3 parts that are surface bodies and not solids.
major axis is Z and flow in z is 1.62m/s
In the stress test, I don't have a solid grasp on the boundary conditions in SW, this is my first attempt in solidworks, and not ansys...
only testing against its weight(abs plastic) against gravity
Can someone lend a hand and help me what is screwed up in my flow sim, and stress test?
