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.

SOLIDWORKS Free Xpress Utilities-Part 4-FloXpress – Computer Aided Technology
Now the part is ready. The FloXpress wizard has a procedural sequence that enables the user maneuver through the simulation with ease and comprehensively understand the simulation. The part that we use here is a simple part because our main goal is the process of floxpress.
You cannot use different fluids simultaneously. Click next and then click solve and wait. The inlet conditions can be defined in terms of pressure, volume flow rate or mass flow rate. Solidworks FloXpress is a feature inside Solidworks that allows floxprrss designer simulate flow of fluids through a model. We need to first create the lids for the two ends before we begin the simulation.
As you can see in the message box, the model is not ready for flow analysis.
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.
From the report we can obtain properties such as maximum flow velocity. 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 will make sure that my future students have the links to read this themselves.
I went with a C-D Nozzle geometry for this demonstration. Right click on it and select edit part:.

In the fluids windowselect water and click next. The check geometry window appears which indicates the smallest passage. Click floxprss the next button in welcome message. Do the same for the other side and we will be ready for floxpress. I did it too, now or part is a closed chamber. Home solidworks tutorial ebooks solidworks flowxpress The analysis is based on the calculated velocity field. Home Support Daily Dose You can examine the flow in much more complicated parts like valves too the process is the same.
Click on the next button again. Next we choose the fluid that would flow through the model. Based on the results of the simulation the designer. Now there is a lid on one side. A sample report is like the tuyorial shown below. SWA home about contact us.
This simple tutorial is designed to show you the process of solidworks floxpress. Now go for the floxpress on the tools menu again. In order to see the lids and getting a better sight of flow later on, we need to transparent the part. This was a very simple flow analysis. Now the part1 is added to design tree. So right click on main part and select appearance. Once the geometry is valid, you next select water or air as the fluid for the calculation.
Define a plane parallel to the floxrpess face of the part and set the mm offset distance. All of these articles will be stored in the category of Daily Dose…. First you must model the following part and I assume that you know the basics of solidworks 3d modeling.
Field testing is mandatory to validate your final design. Next we define the inlet boundary conditions. Trajectories are tangent to the flow velocity at every point. The velocity chart illustrates the flow speed during the processthe colors are observable in the flow. We are here to close the two ends of the part so insert a new part just like below:. This is a great tool to help you identify problem areas in your design and improve them before you manufacture any parts.
Excellent help tutorials with your Free Xpress Utilities series. For the sake of keeping this tutorial short I leave it to you. The first step is to ensure that the model has no openings fully closed with lids.
