Irfan’s SW 2013 Flow Simulation Pick of the Day: Flow Leakage Browser [VIDEO]
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.
A number of people are quite reluctant to use shell elements vs. solid elements. Shell elements can be a huge time save since they allow the modelling of thin features with relatively much fewer elements than solid elements. They are also easier to mesh and…
New to stress analysis? Ever wondering what they mean by yield or creep or fatigue when performing Simulation studies? Joe Galiera, SolidWorks Simulation Technical Manager, started a series of blog posts with the intention of discussing the meaning of 150 “good to know” analysis terms. Joe writes: I thought it might be a good idea to provide some basic definitions of terms that are used in analysis that are good to know, to be able to communicate intelligently about Simulation. These are not meant to be definitive technical definitions but more fundamental knowledge of these terms You can find this glossary of analysis terms in the SolidWorks Simulation Blog. As of today there are 3 posts, covering the first 29 terms: Terms used in analysis – Set…
