Hi,

I am trying to see how much a coplex model with tons of different parts will deflect under the weight of water... the water follows tons of different surfaces so i think its easiest to model the water that way and just give it gravity in Solidworks Simulation.....

However... what is the modulus of elasticty of water? i am getting some crazy numbers on the internet of 2.2 GPa... thats unreal!

Do you care what the water's modulus of elasticity is for this problem? Couldn't you pick any reasonably, and perhaps low value and just let the water conform to the surfaces, just like it does in real life? I think the important physical characteristic of water for this problem may only be its density, which, when entered correctly, will give the correct forces on your tons of different surfaces.
