Ansys Fluent – Free Surface (Weir 2D)

Free surface is the surface of a fluid that is subject to zero parallel shear stress, such as the interface between two homogeneous fluids, for example, liquid water and the air in the Earth’s atmosphere.

Ansys Fluent – Multiphase (Water & Glycerin)

A large number of flows encountered in nature and technology are a mixture of phases. Physical phases of matter are gas, liquid, and solid, but the concept of phase in a multiphase flow system is applied in a broader sense. In multiphase flow,

Ansys Fluent – Fluidized Bed

A fluidized bed is a physical phenomenon occurring when a quantity of a solid particulate substance (usually present in a holding vessel) is placed under appropriate conditions to cause a solid/fluid mixture to behave as a fluid.

Ansys Fluent – Centrifugal Pump (Cavitation)

Source: MichaelSmithEngineers A centrifugal pump is a mechanical device designed to move a fluid by means of the transfer of rotational energy from one or more driven rotors, called impellers.  Fluid enters the rapidly rotating impeller along its axis and is cast out...

Ansys Fluent – Heat Transfer & Counter Flow

Source: Thermex First we need to understand what the differences are between counter flow and parallel flow. As a brief description; the term refers to the relationship between the flow directions of the hot and cold fluids. With parallel flow the fluids are...

Ansys CFX Tutorials

Ansys CFX – NACA Airfoil 4412

During the late 1920s and into the 1930s, the NACA developed a series of thoroughly tested airfoils and devised a numerical designation for each airfoil — a four digit number that represented the airfoil section’s critical geometric properties.

Ansys CFX – Multi-Species (Smokestack)

Please add this setup about Initialization, right click on Flow Analysis > Insert > Global Initialization then double click on Global Initialization and modify as it appears in the image below.

Ansys CFX – Heat Transfer Solid/Solid

Source: brighthubengineering Heat transfer is the process of transfer of heat from high temperature reservoir to low temperature reservoir. In terms of the thermodynamic system, heat transfer is the movement of heat across the boundary of the system due to temperature...

Ansys CFX – Import Pressure to Ansys Mechanical (FSI)

Fluid-structure interaction (FSI) is the multiphysics study of how fluids and structures interact. The fluid flow may exert pressure and/or thermal loads on the structure. These loads may cause structural deformation significant enough to change the fluid flow itself.

Ansys Meshing Tutorials

Ansys Meshing – Mapped & Match Control

The Match Control matches the mesh on two or more faces or edges in a model. The Meshing application provides two types of match controls—cyclic and arbitrary.

Ansys Meshing – How to select internal walls?

For solid models, meshing technologies from ANSYS provide robust, well-shaped quadratic tetrahedral meshing on even the most complicated geometries.

Ansys Meshing – Pinch

The Pinch feature lets you remove small features (such as short edges and narrow regions) at the mesh level in order to generate better quality elements around those features.

Ansys Meshing – Hexahedral Mesh

The MultiZone mesh method provides automatic decomposition of geometry into mapped (structured/sweepable) regions and free (unstructured) regions. It automatically generates a pure hexahedral mesh where possible and then fills the more difficult to capture regions with unstructured mesh.

Ansys Meshing – Fine Mesh

Ansys Meshing – Fine Mesh

Ansys DesignModeler Tutorials

Ansys DesignModeler – Offset Surface

The Offset function allows you to create a set of lines and arcs that are offset by an equal distance from an existing set of “straight” lines and “circular” arcs. The original set of lines and arcs must be connected in a simple end-to-end fashion and can form either an open or closed profile.

Ansys DesignModeler – Connect

The Connect feature may be used to align and possibly join a set of vertices, edges or faces. The alignment takes the form of a stretching and aligning of existing geometry.

Ansys DesignModeler – Mid-Surface

The Mid-Surface feature allows the creation of Surface bodies that are midway between existing Solid body faces. The resulting surface body/bodies have a Thickness property which defines the “thickness” that surface body represents.

Ansys DesignModeler – Tetrakaidecahedron

A tetradecahedron is a polyhedron with 14 faces. There are numerous topologically distinct forms of a tetradecahedron, with many constructible entirely with regular polygon faces.
