Hi,

suppose you have a cold piece of iron in an oven. You want to know how long does it take for the iron part to reach a certain temeprature.

You can do this with a transient analysis.

Usually an oven is a closed environment in which there is air recirculation.

Flow simulation needs an entry point and an exit.

Can you still simulate this thermal exchange problem with solidworks flow simulation ?

Thanks all,

Alex

Yes flow can do this problem. You just add one small pressure BC so any flow is trivial. Or you could just use the FEA code and apply a convection coefficient of say 5W/m2K.
