    SOLIDWORKS SIMULATION DENSITY SEPARATION OF 3 OR MORE LIQUIDS WITH DIFFERENT DENSITIES

    Arkmando Arratia

      HI GUYS,

      I am wondering if it is possible to use solidworks flow simulation to separate 3 mixed substances with different densities. I plan to do this in a settlement tank and what I would like to know is the residence time (time needed for the substances to fully separate). I have been looking for helpful information and I found a video which illustrates what I am trying to accomplish.

      In my case there would be 3 liquids and they would be homogeneously mixed. Is a simulation like this possible using solidworks and how could I do it? Or should I try another software with better flow simulation capabilities? Which one would you recommend?

       

      Regards,
