Design Modeler

Design Modeler – Connect

The Connect feature can be used after the Share Topology feature to selectively share faces between two bodies of a multibody part. You will need to specify a tolerance and ANSYS DesignModeler will connect two faces into one face if the faces lie within the specified tolerance.

ANSYS ICEM CFD

ANSYS ICEM CFD – Extrude Mesh

The Extrude Mesh option allows you to create elements of one type from selected elements of a lower dimension along a defined direction. This option is generally used to create a volume mesh of non-varying cross-section from a 2D mesh profile.

ANSYS CFX

ANSYS CFX – Heat Transfer through a Pipe

Equally as interesting as the effects of heat transfer on a system are the methods by which this occurs. Whenever there is a temperature difference, heat transfer occurs. Heat transfer may occur rapidly, such as through a cooking pan, or slowly, such as through the walls of a picnic ice chest.

Design Modeler

Design Modeler – 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. The faces can be…

ANSYS FLUENT

ANSYS FLUENT – Heat Exchanger

A heat exchanger is a device used to transfer heat between two or more fluids. The fluids can be single or two phase and, depending on the exchanger type, may be separated or in direct contact. Devices involving energy sources such as nuclear fuel pins or fired heaters are not normally regarded as heat exchangers although many of the principles involved in their design are the same.
