Irfan’s SW 2013 Flow Simulation Pick of the Day: Flow Leakage Browser [VIDEO]

Article by Irfan Zardadkhan, PhD, CSWE updated December 4, 2012


My SolidWorks Flow Simulation 2013 pick of the day is the new leakage browser functionality.

Hidden within the lids creation tool is the leakage tracking functionality. It helps you quickly locate holes or displacement gaps within the flow models.

The tool works by selecting a pair of faces, one on the inside of the flow domain and one on the outside of the flow domain and then finds a connecting path between the two faces. The only way to get from one face to the other would be through a hole or a gap.

This tool can really help debug issues with flow domains which would have required a lot of manual effort in the previous releases.

Watch the video below to see the tool in action.
