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.

The Solidworks FloXpress icon is located under the evaluate tab. In order to see the lids and getting a better sight of flow later on, we need to transparent the part.

We need to first create the lids for the two ends before we begin the simulation. The boundary conditions are also clearly described in the report.
Use this information in conjunction with experimental data and practical experience. This simulations can be done using either pipes or bubbles. The next step is to solve the model.

Now the part is ready. The velocity chart illustrates the flow speed during the processthe colors are observable in the flow. Excellent help tutorials with your Free Xpress Utilities series.
The part that we use here is a simple part because our main goal is the process of floxpress. Once the geometry is valid, you next select tuorial or air as the fluid for the calculation. A new assembly opens, the begin assembly window appears with your part ready to insert, just click on the working area and your part will insert there. I will make sure that my future students have the links to read this themselves.
Next we define the inlet boundary conditions. The opening must be closed with lids. SWA home about contact us.
Tutorial – Using FloXpress in Solidworks?
First you must model floxpreess following part and I assume that you know the basics of solidworks 3d modeling. This simple tutorial is designed to show you the process of solidworks floxpress. Define a plane parallel to the end face of the part and set the mm offset distance. From the results window you can simulate the trajectory of fluid particles as they move through the model.
A Microsoft Word report can be generated. You cannot use different fluids simultaneously. Once a pressure is selected, you can run the analysis tutoriaal calculate flow velocity.
So right click tutoeial main part and select appearance. A sample report is like the one shown below. I did it too, now or part is a closed chamber. Trajectories are tangent to the flow velocity at every point.

Next we choose the fluid that would flow through the model. This free tool allows you to calculate how fluid or air flows through a part or assembly document.
We then define the outlet conditions in terms of atmospheric pressure. Click on the next button in welcome message.
All of these articles will be flodpress in the category of Daily Dose…. 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.
Click on the next button again. The first step is to ensure that the model has no openings fully closed with lids. June 17, by Chris Taylor. As you can see in the message box, the model is not ready for flow analysis. You can examine the flow in much more complicated floxpresss like valves too the process is the same. Now there is a lid on one side. Right click on it and select edit part:.
