SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation is one of the most highly regarded CFD tools available today - and the best value on the market. Many of our customers use Flow Simulation for assessing thermal cooling strategies for electronics. Join Simulation Engineer, Paolo Olmos, as he shares his extensive experience with CFD analysis in electronics. He will demonstrate how the Analysis Consulting team at Hawk Ridge Systems tackles an electronic enclosure analysis project from start to finish. Whether you are in the midst of a current project - or are interested in applying best practices to your future analysis projects, Paolo's insights will help with your CFD projects.
Thanks to its integrated fluid and heat transfer capabilities, SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation can be used to quickly optimize the design of liquid cooled components or even an entire closed-loop cooling system. Join Senior Applications Engineer Ryan Navarro for a look how Flow Simulation performs this type of analysis on products in the fast-growing industry of high powered electronics.
Whether you’re designing the latest high-tech electronics or the future of private aviation, products are being tasked with surviving in ever more challenging environments. Take a look at an overview of the tools and services from Hawk Ridge Systems that can predict the thermal, fluid, or aerodynamic performance of your products in any situation, including SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional, SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation, and SIMULIA Abaqus.
There are four things we recommend before starting any flow simulation analysis in SOLIDWORKS: turn on Force Rebuild with Verification on Rebuild, Check Entity, Check Geometry, and Interference Detection. Taking care of this short to-do list before running an analysis can save lots of time (and potential headaches!) down the road. Learn about the steps we recommend, why they're important, and how to set them up yourself.
For anyone interested in understanding how fluid flow is affecting their designs, this eDemo is a must-see. Take a look at some typical customer applications for SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation and see how companies in such varied industries such as engine design, high-tech electronics, or lighting get better designs in less time with the power of integrated analysis tools.
If there's one thing that most designers share, it's that their perfect product would do its job while being an inconspicuous as possible. For that reason, many products need to perform their task while staying cool, yet avoiding noisy fans or other obstrusive cooling apparatus. Join us to explore some of the tools and techniques available in SOLDIWORKS Flow Simulation that are allowing engineers of all stripes to answer those questions- without CFD expertise.
Electronics system and enclosure design is getting more and more challenging from a thermal perspective - industry trends are putting more power into smaller boxes than ever before. This means that traditional best-practice approaches to thermal solutions just aren't working any more - no longer can you slap in a fan and heat sink and call it done. Thermal solutions need to be tuned to the particular scenario, and a detailed look at airflow and temperature patterns within an enclosure are essential for developing the right solution. CFD thermal analysis using a tool like SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation provides engineers and designers the insight they need, and coupled with the power of the design solution from SOLIDWORKS, you can quickly and accurately work towards the optimal solution. Join us to explore some of the tools and techniques available, and learn how thermal analysis is no longer purely in the domain of the CFD experts.
The suite of analysis capabilities in SOLIDWORKS goes beyond just stress analysis, and the 2016 release of SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation and SOLIDWORKS Plastics are no exception. Both tools include new meshing and solver capabilities to generate a more accurate solution in less time than ever. Enhanced results reviewing, like symmetric results in Flow and completely reworked Plastics reporting make the outputs of those calculations even easier to understand.
SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation's greatest potential lies in its ability to run complex fluid analyis directly on your SOLIDWORKS geometry, allowing for quick comparisons of different geometry. Utiliizing the Parametric Study optimization capabilities, even faster examinations of design options make it possible to refine a final design or test a large range of concepts during research and development.
