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.

Tutoral are tangent to the flow velocity at every point. We need to first create the lids for the two ends before we begin the simulation.
The next step is to solve the model. You cannot use different fluids simultaneously. In the fluids windowselect water and click next. Once we have created the tutoria, we can then proceed to begin the simulation. Once a pressure is selected, you can run the analysis to calculate tutorkal velocity. From the results window you can simulate the trajectory of fluid particles as they move through the model.

This simulations can be done using either pipes or bubbles.
Tutorial – Using FloXpress in Solidworks?
A Microsoft Word report can be generated. Now the part is ready. You can examine the flow in much more complicated parts like valves too the process is the same.
Next we define the inlet boundary conditions. Next we choose the fluid that would flow through the model. Define a plane parallel to the end face of the part and set the mm offset distance.
We then define the outlet conditions in terms of atmospheric pressure. Home solidworks tutorial ebooks solidworks flowxpress This simple tutorial is designed to show you the process of solidworks floxpress.
The analysis is based on the calculated velocity field. I will make sure that my future students have the links to read this themselves.
Now the part1 is added to design tree. This is a great tool to help you identify problem areas in your design and improve them before you manufacture any parts. The part that we use here is a simple part because our main goal is the process of floxpress.
The Solidworks FloXpress icon is located cloxpress the evaluate tab.

We are here to close the two ends of the part so insert a new part just like below:. Close the check geometry window. Once the geometry is valid, you next select water or air as the fluid for the calculation.
The inlet conditions can be defined in terms of pressure, volume flow rate or mass flow rate. In order to see the lids and getting a better sight of flow later on, we need to transparent the part.
SOLIDWORKS FloXpress is fluid flow simulation add-in software
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. I went with a C-D Nozzle geometry for this demonstration.
The opening must be closed with lids. Field testing is mandatory to validate your final design. For the sake of keeping this tutorial short I leave it to you.
