Correctly Scaling Models for SOLIDWORKS Simulation


In many instances, physical testing, especially in the field of aerodynamics, must be done on a scale model instead of the full size, not everyone can have NASA’s wind tunnel. The “Scale” command in SolidWorks allows a body to be scaled down(or up) to similarly recreate the physical scale model.  However, it is very important how you adjust the forces in a Simulation to correctly pattern the actual forces experienced by the scale model.  In my example I will use […]
