Phase change (like boiling water) cannot be simulated with flow simulation.
With one exception : cavitation. There is a cavitation model available that you can apply on liquids. WIth this you can see where cavitation will occur, but no visualisation of the bubbles
i want to do a thermal analysis.
1. A fluid is stored in container.
2.. I want to apply heat to that container ,after some point of time i need to find the initial and final temperature of the fluid with respect to time.
can i do it solidworks ?
You can set up the time that you would like the analysis to run when you do the wizard to set up the project. In the "Physical Features" section, if you activate the "Time Dependant study" and add the "total analysis time" and 'Output time step', you can get the temperatures for in between time durations and the final temperature for your study.
Hope this helps
I had a similar case when the flowing water along the heat exchanger tubes when it crosses the boliling point which i wanted to simulate. Infact in this case i wanted to visualise the phase change, its not possible. But we can look at mass fraction of water and steam in this case.
