    Flow Simulation - I need to see how a water tank is filled

    Juan Uribe

      I need to see how a water tank is filled, it is possible to set a model where the tank is initially filled with air and then the water starts to fill it?

       

      Thanks a lot.

          Hi Juan,

           

          SOLIDWORKS flow simulation cannot do multi-phase flow. Gases can only mix with gases and liquids with liquids. If you want to run a simulation with liquid and gas they have to be in separate domains, and therefore cannot mix.

           

          If you want to run this kind of analysis (open surface analysis or multiphase flow) you will need to explore another code. Simulia, Ansys etc will be able to offer this, but at a cost...

           

          Hope this helps

           

          Cheers
