## CFD Lesson 7: SOLIDWORKS Enclosure and 3DEXPERIENCE Fluid Scenario Creation

In this SOLIDWORKS assembly save your model to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and manage your data with PLM attributes. Define two physics conditions to investigate internal turbulent air flow from a fan and thermal effects from a Heat sink and a chip. Use different mesh types and materials to explore capacity, simulation run time, and accuracy. Display and review the Gauge Pressure, Velocity and Temperature contour plot. Examine the temperature at different points throughout the chip, Heat sink and enclosure using a XY Plot from Path.

## CFD Lesson 6: SOLIDWORKS Race Car and 3DEXPERIENCE Fluid Scenario Creation

How do you inspire students with fluid dynamics and the physics and math behind Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) ? The SOLIDWORKS Race Car external turbulent flow example can be done in a lab period. By simplifying the mesh, understanding model size in a boundary box, and tradeoffs between capability, time, and accuracy, you can make a virtual twin of a wind tunnel test. David starts with SOLIDWORKS and introduces PLM through the 3DEXPERIENCE Add-In. From the SOLIDWORKS Task Pane, use the Fluid Scenario Creation App to define the model, scenario and get results.

## CFD Lesson 5: SOLIDWORKS Duct and 3DEXPERIENCE Fluid Scenario Creation (Part 2)

From the SOLIDWORKS Task pane, launch the Fluid Scenario Creation App to open the Duct created in the previous lesson . Display a cross-section of the mesh and explore the Mesh Visualization options. Create two mass flow sensors to prove a successful converged study. Add streamlines with a new material, Nitrogen and plot Gauge Pressure and Velocity. After a successful simulation, return to SOLIDWORKS.
