In my previous blog, I showed an application of the free surface feature in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation. For a 2D section of a spillway and flow over a weir, I showed how this feature can accurately predict the hydraulic jump. Well, 2D isn’t that exciting, is it? That’s why we love to use SOLIDWORKS in the first place! So I generated a 3D simulation and found impressive looking results while learning some new things along the way. Here’s the model […]

Recently, I investigated which coil/heat source configuration would heat a hot tub the quickest. The Free Surface functionality of SOLIDWORKS Flow made this simulation possible by mimicking the water filled hot tub and the surrounding air. To find out how to heat your hot tub the fastest Click Here: Back Yard Hot Tubs and SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation When first setting up this model I knew that the tub would need to be filled with water, and I set out doing […]
