SOLIDWORKS 2015 Sneak Peek: Rotating Mesh Region for Flow Simulation

launch intro_9.9

Each year SOLIDWORKS releases a new version of its flagship product. Over the course of 15 days we will be taking a deeper dive and posting videos for 15 new tools coming in this feature-packed release. To learn more about SOLIDWORKS 2015, you can click on the banner above to check out many of the new features and learn where you can go and see a live demonstration of all the new features.

Rotating Mesh Region capabilities in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation enable Product Engineers to analyze the fluid flow through rotating components of the model.

The new “sliding mesh” mode is essential for simulating rotating equipment where fluid flow entering the rotor is highly non-symmetric with regard to the axis of rotation.  In addition you can also simulate rotating to a discrete angle as well as rotor speed dependent on time.

If you want to see more of the 15 Features coming in SOLIDWORKS 2015 blog series, you can check in on the announcement post from August 22, 2014 where we will be updating and adding links to each of these posts as they go live.
