New in SolidWorks Flow Simulation 2012: Tracer Study

With the new tracer feature found in SolidWorks Flow Simulation 2012, you can quickly simulate concentration source, surface condensation, or evaporation of an admixture fluid (for example, water vapor or toxic gas) in the carrier fluid (for example, air). The presence of the admixture has negligible influence on the carrier fluid flow.

Tracer is an admixture presented at low mass fraction in a carrier fluid with no influence (passive) on this carrier fluid. If concentration of a gas admixture is low you can consider it as a tracer (examples of tracers in air: water vapor, H2, CO, NO, NO2, Cl2, HCl, NH3, H2S, SO2). The tracer feature is available in the HVAC module only.

This is only one of the over 200 enhancements added to our 20th release of SolidWorks.

Produce World-Class Manufacturing Assembly Instructions

Are effective manufacturing assembly instructions critical to the success of your business?

If they are, our new 3DVIA Composer video will show you how leading companies leverage existing 3D CAD data to quickly create visual assets, which can be published as 2D-based documentation, and even fully-interactive 3D animations. The result is world-class manufacturing assembly instructions.

See how the powerful combination of SolidWorks Premium and 3DVIA Composer technical communication software can help your company.

Start assembly instructions sooner, update them faster, and complete them concurrently with the product design.

Produce clear visual assembly instructions that leave no room for confusion, interpretation or ambiguity.

Reduce manufacturing personnel training time requirements and decrease localization costs.

Get manufacturing assembly right the first time, with fewer errors and less rework.
