An Excel file will open with figure 2. Specifying the Porous Medium - Unidirectional Type 1 Right-click the Porous Medium 1 icon and select Edit Definition. Also, Flow Trajectories and the new Isosurface animations. C5-2 Creating a Flow Simulation Project. These two factors make Flow Simulation the perfect tool for engineers who want to test the impact of their design changes. .
Specifying Boundary Conditions A boundary condition is required in any place where fluid enters or exits the model, excluding openings where a fan is specified. Right click again in the graphics window and select Rotate View once again to rotate the part so that the inner right surface is visible in the graphics window. This book can also be used to show students the capabilities of fluid flow and heat transfer simulations in freshman and sophomore courses such as Introduction to Engineering. You will need to toggle between different sheets in Excel to view each chart. Goals can be set throughout the entire domain Global Goals , within a selected volume Volume Goals , for a selected surface area Surface Goals , or at given point Point Goals.
That's why even if you have a thin solid feature inside the flow region it is not necessary to specify minimum wall thickness if it is greater than or equal to the minimum gap size. The variation of boundarylayer thickness, displacement thickness, momentum thickness and the local friction coefficient will also be determined. B4-6 Switching off the Automatic Mesh Definition. Now you can start with Flow Simulation. The objective is to show how easy fluid flow simulation can be with Flow Simulation and how simple it is to analyze design variations. Free-Convection on a Vertical Plate and from a Horizontal Cylinder 13.
In order to make the results comparable with the previous model, it would be necessary to adjust the valve angle to match the size of the flow passage of the first model. Click on Front Plane in the FeatureManager design tree and select Front from the View Orientation drop down menu in the graphics window. Change the viscosity value in the Expression to 1. Harness 1 Motor to Battery Holder Red positive. The result can be displayed either in contour-, isoline- or vector-representation. Create a new configuration using the SolidWorks Configuration Manager Tree.
Let us now examine the velocity distribution in more detail. The Face coordinate system is created only when one planar face is selected. Gravitational effects can be included for natural convection cases. Now click on flow simulation menu and select wizard. To see trajectories inside the porous media we will apply some transparency to the model. Click anywhere in the graphic area to clear the selection.
B2-10 Creating a Project from the Template. You will see the plot like the one shown below. Same motor used in all our projects. The specified roughness value is the Rz value. Also, in the Control intervals portion of the window, change the Ratio for X1 to -5 and the Ratio for Y1 to -100.
Specifying the minimum wall thickness is necessary if you want to resolve thin walls smaller than the smallest gap. First, complete Chapters 1 and 2 to set up planes and sketch. For this model, Plane2 can be a good choice. Select No units from the dimensionality drop down menu. To specify a different solid material for one or more components, you can define a Solid Material condition for these components after the project is created.
Next, we will create a split line. You can specify Fans on the surfaces, free of Boundary Conditions and Heat Sources. What about topics like mesh sensitivity, contact resistance, thermoelectric coolers, rotating regions fan blades , flow animations, transient analysis, and heat sinks? Viewing Cut Plots 1 Right-click the Cut Plots icon and select Insert. A1-5 Specifying the Engineering Goal. Toolpaths to cut hull from 2 by 4 block of wood.
