Book Description

An Introduction to SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation 2017 takes you through the steps of creating the SOLIDWORKS part for the simulation followed by the setup and calculation of the SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation project. Results from calculations are visualized and compared with theoretical solutions and empirical data. The text’s fourteen chapter start with the objectives and a description of the specific problems that are studied. Chapter exercises provide reinforcement and practice of what has been learned. The content supplies coverage of flow simulation for students taking Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer courses/modules, and can be used to show capabilities of fluid flow and heat transfer simulations in earlier courses/modules such as Introduction to Engineering.
