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.

Once we have created the lids we can then proceed to begin the simulation. Do the same for the other side and we will be ready for floxpress. Based on the results of the simulation the designer. 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. Now the part1 is added to design tree.
Tutorial – Using FloXpress in Solidworks?
The analysis is based on the calculated velocity field. This was a very simple flow analysis.
The part that we use here is a simple part because our main goal is the process of floxpress. June 17, by Chris Taylor. Use this information in conjunction with experimental data and practical experience.
As you can see in the message box, the model is not ready for flow analysis. Now go for the floxpress on the tools menu again. Next we define the inlet boundary conditions. In the fluids windowselect water and click next.
We then define the outlet conditions in terms of atmospheric pressure. Define a plane parallel to the end face of the part and set the mm offset distance.
SOLIDWORKS FloXpress is fluid flow simulation add-in software
The opening must be closed with lids. Trajectories are tangent to the flow velocity at every point. Close the check geometry window.
In order to see the lids and getting a better sight of flow later on, we need to transparent the part. The first step is to ensure that the model has no openings fully closed with lids. The next step is to solve the model. Click on the next button again. From the results window you can simulate the trajectory of fluid particles as they move through the model.

First you must model the following part and I assume that you know the basics of solidworks 3d modeling. I went with a C-D Nozzle geometry for this demonstration. I did it too, now or part is a closed chamber. This simulations can be done using either uttorial or bubbles.
A Microsoft Word report can be generated. I will make sure that my future students have the links to read this themselves. 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.

For the sake of keeping this tutorial short I leave it to you.
You can flocpress the flow in much more complicated parts like valves too the process is the same. Click next and then click solve and wait.
