Anybody doing CFD Flow analysis? Internal flow simulation?

Post by hybridprinter » Thu Nov 26, 2015 12:55 pm

Does anyone know how to perform CFD flow analysis for most efficient air flow inside a valve-like component?

I have no idea, but I have a feeling that SolidWorks' Flow Simulation is supposed to help. I'd personally be interested in flow simulation around a vehicle body, but not enough (currently) to do some serious work.

CFD simulates fluid (either liquid or gas) passing through or around an object. The analysis can be very complex—for example, containing in one calculation heat transfer, mixing, and unsteady and compressible flows. The ability to predict the impact of such flows on your product performance is time consuming and costly without some form of simulation tool.

I can do it on my copy of SolidWorks. What exactly do you need?
