Learn CFD with Solidworks


Solidworks particle study documentation

CFD analysis and optimization using SolidWorks topics are covered in every video. The videos discuss problems unique to their industry and illustrate them with straightforward examples. This course was developed with intermediate and advanced students in mind.

Unit 1: The Effects of Reduced Nozzle Size and Obstacles on the Flow of Fluids

Learning outcome: Students will be able to solve the characteristics of flowing stream in a reduction nozzle.

Problem: Find the characteristics of the flowing stream in a nozzle, knowing that a sphere is located in the space between the higher diameter pipe and the reduction zone.

Questions to solve:

  1. The average velocity at the outlet.
  2. Velocity flow field.
  3. Pressure distribution within the fluid.
  4. Pressure at the surface of the sphere.
  5. Pressure at the surface of the duct.

Unit 2: Loss coefficient calculations under different conditions

Learning outcome: Students will be able to estimate the loss coefficient under different operating levels.

Problem: Estimate the loss coefficient in a ball valve under different opening levels.

Questions to solve:

Given the formulas for loss of coefficient and Reynolds number, we will find:

  1. The calibration curve when the valve opening is at 0 degrees.
  2. The calibration curve when the valve opening is at 10 degrees.
  3. The calibration curve when the valve opening is at 15 degrees.
  4. The calibration curve when the valve opens at 20 degrees
  5. extract the data into an excel sheet and graph all the results at different angles.

Unit 3: Fluid characteristics of a counter-current heat exchanger

Learning outcome: Students will be able to set custom equations to solve complex heat transfer problems.


  • Set up a heat transfer model using the Simulation add-in in Solidworks
  • Show how to specify fluid subdomains when multiple fluids are required.
  • Show how to specify solid domains.
  • Set custom equations by using the Goals feature.


Simulate a counter-current two-pipe heat exchanger.

Questions to solve:


  1. The outlet temperature of both streams.
  2. Display the inlet and outlet velocities of both streams.
  3. Display a Cut Plot for the temperature.
  4. Display a flow trajectory plot for the temperature.
  5. Estimate the Log Mean Temperature Difference (LMTD).

Unit 4: The Effects of ventilation systems on the CO2 within an indoor space


COVID-19 has been a major public health concern after its outbreak in early 2020. An indirect way of estimating the probability of the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 in an indoor environment is by measuring the concentration of CO2 in the air. CO2 is a regular component of the air at a concentration of around 400ppm. However, in poorly ventilated facilities, this concentration can rise to an unsafe level.


Simulate the ventilation of a classroom with an initial CO2 concentration in the air of 900 ppm. Use a time-dependant approach to track the change in concentration in the room.

Questions to solve:


  1. Demonstrate the use of the design features such as: Convert Entities, Extruded Cut, and Extruded Boss/Base
  2. Simulate the transport of multiple species.
  3. Demonstrate how to specify the presence and concentration values of multiple species.
  4. Demonstrate how to specify a time-dependant model.
