How to show stress on specific components in SOLIDWORKS Simulation [VIDEO]


If you ran a Simulation study on an assembly, you may need to narrow in on one particular component to review its results.  Here are two methods that can be used to show stress on specific components and the benefits in different situations: Method #1: Isolate Command for Quick ... Read More

How to make the Perfect Golf Putt using SOLIDWORKS Motion [VIDEO]

Surface Curvature

This summer I've realized that my short game could use some work so I thought I'd take some pointers from SOLIDWORKS Motion.  With the use of Motion linked with a Design Study, SOLIDWORKS can automatically calculate the speed and direction required for that perfect golf ... Read More

Heat Transfer Analysis: What they didn’t teach you in engineering school

Heat Transfer Analysis

Using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is no longer relegated to the realm of the specialist. A new class of CFD analysis software, 'Concurrent CFD', is proving to be highly effective at performing heat transfer analysis, enabling mechanical engineers to accelerate key ... Read More

Pressure Drop Analysis using SOLIDWORKS [WHITE PAPER]

Flow Simulation Pressure Drop

If you were taught to only rely on analysis "specialists" or physical prototypes on flow benches to verify designs, it's time to learn more about testing with today's Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) tools. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis is no longer a ... Read More

How Embedded Flow Simulation Accelerates the Mechanical Design Process


For several decades engineers and mathematicians have been trying to improve the understanding and prediction of fluid dynamics and heat transfer phenomena by means of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation. The objective is clear - to optimize the design of products and ... Read More

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
