This tutorial is intended to give basic instruction on how to setup and run a Note: FloXpress will not work if the Flow Simulation add-in is currently installed. Solidworks FloXpress is a feature inside Solidworks that allows a designer simulate flow of fluids through a model. Based on the results of the. This simple tutorial is designed to show you the process of solidworks floxpress. The part that we use here is a simple part because our main goal is the process.

I did it too, now or part is a closed chamber. I went with a C-D Nozzle geometry for this demonstration. Now the part1 is added to design tree. The first step is to tuotrial that the model has no openings fully closed with lids. Home solidworks tutorial ebooks solidworks flowxpress We are here to close the two ends of the part so insert a new part just like below:. Solidworks FloXpress is a feature inside Solidworks that allows a designer simulate flow of fluids through a model.
This free tool allows you to calculate how fluid or air flows through a part or assembly document. Click next and then click solve and wait.
The analysis is based on the calculated velocity field. Right click on it and select edit part:. You can also choose to generate a report from the FloXpress simulation by simply clicking on the generate report icon at the bottom of the results tab. Home solidworks tutorial ebooks solidworks 3d sketch-1 solidworks sheetmetal-1 solidworks loft-1 solidworks flowxpress-1 solidworks photoworks-1 solidworks motionstudy solidworks drawing In order to see the lids and getting a better sight of flow later on, we need to transparent the part.
You can examine the flow in much more complicated parts like valves too the process is the same. Do the same for the other side and we will be ready for floxpress. From the report we can obtain properties such as maximum flow velocity.
The velocity chart illustrates the flow speed during the processthe colors are observable in the flow. SWA home about contact us. The opening must be closed with lids. Trajectories are tangent to the flow velocity at every point.
As you can see in the message box, the model is not ready for flow analysis. For the sake of keeping this tutorial short I leave it to you.
Define a plane parallel to the end face of the part and set the mm offset distance. The Solidworks FloXpress icon is located under the evaluate tab. I will make sure that my future students have the links to read this themselves.
Excellent help tutorials with your Free Xpress Utilities series. First you must model the following part and I assume that you know the basics of solidworks 3d modeling. Now the part is ready. Share this with your friends.
Field testing is mandatory to validate your final design. This was a very simple flow analysis. Once we have created the lids we can then proceed to begin the simulation. Home Support Daily Dose The part that we use here is a simple part because our main goal is the process of floxpress. Next we define the inlet boundary conditions. You cannot use different fluids simultaneously.

A Microsoft Word report can be generated. This is a great tool to help you identify problem areas in your design and improve them before floxprrss manufacture any parts. This simulations can be done using either pipes or bubbles. A sample report is like the one shown below. This simple tutorial is designed to show you the process of solidworks floxpress.
Tutorial – Using FloXpress in Solidworks?
All of these articles will be stored in the category of Daily Dose…. The next step is to solve the model. Now there is a lid on one side. June 17, by Chris Taylor.
SOLIDWORKS FloXpress is fluid flow simulation add-in software
A new assembly opens, the begin assembly tuorial appears with your part ready to insert, just click on the working area and your part will insert there.

Next we choose the fluid that would flow through the model. From the results window you can simulate the trajectory of fluid particles as they move through the model. The boundary conditions are also clearly described in the report.
Once a pressure is selected, you can run the analysis to calculate flow velocity. Click on the next button in welcome message.
