Revisit your childhood with SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation

In Simulation by ateworksLeave a Comment

Competing who’s paper plane flies the farthest and highest is part of everyone’s childhood memory. But how do we validate our our paper plane design is achieving optimal performance? How to fly high and far enough? With a little bit of help using SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation, you definitely can fly higher and farther. Below is a paper plane example that we created in SOLIDWORKS. Using this simple illustration, we are going to investigate the aerodynamic fluids effect on the flying plane when the paper plane flies. A little tweak to the model we remain half the model with an elevated …

Human Comfort Analysis with SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation (HVAC Module) in Bus Air Conditioning System

In Simulation by ateworksLeave a Comment

By William Overview: Designing a cooling system involves selection of cooling capability, sizing of ducting and maintaining good ventilation across the whole chamber. A good cooling system will definitely ensure high human comfort level. A CFD analysis is carried out to understand the flow distribution in a bus cooling system. Human comfort parameter is obtained as well as by projecting the Predicted Mean Vote Index (PMV) and Predicted Percentage of Dissatisfied (PPD) values. We will be using the SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation to illustrate how we can study HVAC on the bus model below. (HVAC is defined as Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) Bus …

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Thermal Analysis Application For Semiconductor Industries

In Simulation by ateworksLeave a Comment

By William SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional is a fully integrated solution with SOLIDWORKS that offers thermal study to tackle thermal related problem in product. Thermal analysis in SOLIDWORKS Simulation applies the principle of conduction, convection and radiation using CAD model of real-life product to simulate the thermal conditions of variable geometry and variable boundary condition. In Semiconductor Industries, very often, there will be considerably amount of time spent on producing prototype to test for product durability and reliability. A typical scenario will be to analyse the surrounding environment of testing chamber where by heat source is required to maintain a constant testing temperature. …

Understanding the perfect spin bowling using Solidworks Motion

Understanding the perfect spin bowling using Solidworks Motion by Selvam Just to put it out there, I love cricket. It is one of my biggest passions and favourite pass time. I am always fascinated about the techniques needed to do the perfect bowl – achieving that optimum height and speed, and that killer spin. Everybody has their own way of throwing, but the common thing about all good throws are the physics involved with it. So what is the best initial velocity? Or what is the best angular velocity (increased no of revolutions) needed to give you that deadly spin? …

Solidworks Simulation – The 5 rules of defining a Steady State Thermal Study

In Simulation by AngieLeave a Comment

Solidworks Simulation – The 5 rules of defining a Steady State Thermal Study By David I was working on a thermal study case recently and thought that I would share it today as we do not have much simulation articles so far. So for today, I want to talk about some of the important aspects when defining a Steady State Thermal Study. There is this correlation between a thermal study and structural study, which is something like this:   In this case, we should be more aware about the boundary conditions needed to fully define a thermal study. And these …

Explode Animation Using Solidworks

In Simulation by AngieLeave a Comment

Explode Animation Using Solidworks by Nathan A video is always  a good tool to communicate an idea as it uses visuals to convey the information that is intended. Especially when it comes to product presentations or how-tos, a properly made video goes a long way in making sure that no miscommunication happens. For today’s post, I would like to touch on that which is on creating simple explode animation. The Solidworks explode function already has the function of creating an exploded view and the ability to animate such a view. But what if you would like to do more than that, …
