How to simulate a flow driving a turbine in Solidworks?
I am working on a project that requires simulation analysis as part of the analysing process. I have modelled a rotor, a stator, a shaft and a housing. Then I locked the rotor and the shaft together. The stator was locked to the housing (see attached).
I am wondering if there is any way to add a water flow (mass flow) to the model to obtain some output parameters of the rotor/shaft (such as shaft rpm vs flow rate, pressure drop after the turbine section, etc)
Any help is much appreciated!
