A free throw in basketball is a shot about precision and consistency. Error margins are tight, so players implement techniques to improve their chances. One vital technique is to put backspin on the ball. In this article, we will run a motion and aerodynamic analysis using SOLIDWORKS Motion and SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation to look at why backspin is important by comparing it to a shot without spin.
A partially filled tanker travels at speed, and then suddenly stops. The liquid inside its tank continues forward, slamming into the walls, then dissipating over time in waves. How much force does it apply on the tank? How long does it take to dissipate? Could a particular baffle design within the tank reduce the overall force, turbulence, and time to settle? We can find out more about tank sloshing using SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation.
With the partnership of SOLIDWORKS Simulation and 3D printing, we converted a snorkel mask into a respirator in less than 24 hours to help beat COVID-19.
In this article, we perform intake manifold optimization using SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation Computational Fluid Dynamics. Take a look at this process here.
In hospitals, negative pressure rooms are used to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. To illustrate the concept and effectiveness of these rooms, we’ve run some fluid and particle studies using SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation.
Let’s explore the aerodynamic performance of the Cybertruck with SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation and let the results speak for themselves.
New in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation 2020 it is possible to specify the altitude of the system you are setting up. Flow Simulation will then apply the appropriate pressure and temperature conditions for the desired altitude. This enhancement will make it easier to work with different scenarios when using Parametric Studies in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation 2020
This article is about a new interface enhancement to SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation, fan derating, that can be found in SOLIDWORKS 2020. Fans can operate at different speeds. In order to slow down a fan in Flow Simulation 2019 and prior, you would have to manually adjust their fan curve using a spreadsheet. Now in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation 2020, you can view and adjust their fan curve directly in the Fans PropertyManager.
This article addresses why SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation will give a warning while solving stating that there is a vortex occurring across a pressure boundary as well as methods of how to accommodate for this to remove the warning.
