SOLIDWORKS Simulation: Calculating Convection and Verifying Thermal Results

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

I have been asked a few times about calculating and applying a convection boundary condition for SOLIDWORKS Simulation Thermal analyses, because without a CFD software, like SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation, convection must be calculated by hand. As you may already know, there are three modes of heat transfer; conduction, convection, and radiation. SOLIDWORKS Simulation will calculate conduction, but it is up to us to define the parameters for convection and radiation. In this blog I will calculate the convection coefficient of […]

Grilling with SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional – Thermal Study

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

We all know it’s way too cold to cook burgers on the outdoor grill this time of year. For some, the grill might even be covered in snow! With the right seasonings, however, pan fried burgers will do just fine. But although I’ve got the timing down using the grill, I’m not sure how long to cook them in a pan to get a medium rare result. SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional thermal study can help with that. So, grab a skillet, some spices […]
