HOW TO RUN SOLIDWORKS FLOW SIMULATION ON MY FINAL YEAR PROJECT!

My name is adeniyi Babatunde, i am a student of the University of Ilorin, kwara state, Nigeria. I am a final year engineering student currently doing my project in design and simulation.

My project topic is "The simulation of the effect of preheated air on the performance of dual purpose muffle furnace". So far i have been able to deaign the dual purpose muffle furnace(to perform heat treatment and melting) but i am having problem running the flow simulation. As honestly this is my first time even running simulation. I am stuck on what to do.

Please i hopefully need assistance as i am from a very poor family struggling to learn and achieve education.

Please i really hope i can get a reply soon as my time is fast spent on this project and there is just a limited time left.

Here is a link to the design i have done so far

Thank you very much @jonathan Deroner. The video has helped me alot

One big issue i am having concerning this project is that the Furnace is to use a solid fuel as its power source and we chose palm kernel shell, but the inability for me to model a fuel is a problem. Is there any advice on how to go about it please?

Thanks

How to go about a solid fuel model I cannot help you with there unfortunately. I've never seen or heard of it done before in a modeling software. You'll have to research that topic for the software a bit more.
