SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation Heat Pipe

Heat Pipe

A heat pipe is an extremely efficient device for transferring heat from its hotter surface to its colder surface due to evaporating a liquid and condensing its vapor in this device's inner hollow. In Flow Simulation a Heat Pipe is modeled simplistically as an extremely ... Read More

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation: Printed Circuit Board

PCB Cond Vol

Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) are concerned as a special case of solid material having anisotropic thermal conductivity. The integral characteristics of a PCB, i.e. its effective density, specific heat, and components of thermal conductivity, are calculated on the basis of the ... Read More

SOLIDWORKS SIMULATION: The Bearing Connector

bearing 1

You define a bearing connector between split cylindrical faces of a shaft and cylindrical or spherical faces of a housing. You can use a bearing connector when the housing is not much stiffer than the shaft. To define a bearing between the shaft and the housing, right-click ... Read More

In SOLIDWORKS Simulation a new load case manager interface within a Static study allows you to define (secondary) load combinations from (primary) load definitions quickly and evaluate the effects of the various load combinations on your model. Right-click the top icon of a ... Read More

SOLIDWORKS Composer Tutorial: Fluid Flow Animation

fluid-flow-animation

Ever seen a fluid flow animation created in SOLIDWORKS Composer? Here are simple steps you can take to create the illusion of fluid flowing through a pipe in SOLIDWORKS Composer. To begin, apply a texture on an actor that would resemble the presence of a fluid in the pipe. ... Read More
