This article is a companion to this SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation Tutorial. In it, Free Surfaces are used in combination with time-dependent gravity to simulate water flowing out of a pitcher when rotated 90 degrees. The Transient Explorer is employed in order to view the results of this study, specifically the motion of the water over time.   

SOLIDWORKS Plastics Feb 01, 2024

SOLIDWORKS Plastics comes pre-loaded with a wide variety of materials used for injection molding. The built-in database includes common polymers, metals, and coolants derived from data provided by different manufacturers. But what if a project in development uses a material that isn’t found in this list?

Dassault Systémes' robust cloud compute environment can solve Abaqus simulation jobs on up to 192 cores. This cloud solver, housed on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, is fully elastic, enabling unlimited computational resources to simulation analysts. Additionally, this cloud environment offers substantial advantages to simulation users regarding cost-effectiveness and productivity. In this article, we discuss how users can run simulation jobs on the cloud with the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform.

Designing rotating machinery requires a thorough analysis of potential vibrational feedback that could occur in the system during operation. If proper precautions are not taken, excessive vibrational excitations in rotating systems can create catastrophic failures. In this article, see how we used 3DEXPERIENCE STRUCTURAL roles and Abaqus FEA software to perform an analysis workflow focusing on the identification of critical speeds where large vibrational excitations are most likely to occur.

In this article, we discuss how to add a coefficient of drag goal into a flow simulation project. Derived from the principle of Bernoulli’s equation, SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation can help us obtain this value quickly by utilizing our setup parameters.

Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) is a powerful discipline that enables engineers to design, analyze, and optimize complex systems and structures more efficiently and accurately. It has revolutionized the way engineering is done and will continue to be a critical component of the engineering process in the future. If you are looking to bring Finite Element Analysis (FEA) or Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software in-house, there are a few things you should know before you buy.

As advanced simulation software like Abaqus becomes ever more important to developing highly competitive products, manufacturers are looking for ways to expand their FEA capabilities. Many of those manufacturers may begin by looking to hire FEA or CFD or emag simulation engineers, but this may not be the most cost-effective approach.
