What temp is assumed when no temp is applied in SOLIDWORKS Simulation?

For those of you who do thermal analysis on your designs, it’s important to know the behavior to avoid an incorrect boundary condition. This can be said for every analysis you conduct but this time I’m speaking of the default temperature. When performing a transient thermal study SOLIDWORKS SIMULATION asks that you apply an initial temp so that it knows which direction the energy is flowing. Most of us, including myself, are used to selecting faces when applying a load […]

SOLIDWORKS: Blended Curvature Based Mesh in SOLIDWORKS Simulation

Blended Curvature Based Mesh in SOLIDWORKS Simulation   Meshing a part appropriately might be tenuous at times, but it is certainly a lot easier in SOLIDWORKS than just about any other software. We don’t want to set the expectation that meshing is a problem for SOLIDWORKS. Getting a good aspect ratio around the smaller geometry can drive you and your computer a bit crazy, especially if you don’t know the smallest size of your geometry. SOLIDWORKS introduced the blended curvature based […]
