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. The MultiZone mesh method and the Sweep mesh method operate similarly; however, MultiZone has capabilities that make it more suitable for a class of problems for which the Sweep method would not work without extensive geometry decomposition.
This is a basic tutorial about static mixer using ANSYS FLUENT. In this tutorial, you will learn how to create the geometry and the mesh, you will learn how to modify the setup too and visualize the results (internal planes and streamlines).
The VOF formulation in ANSYS FLUENT is generally used to compute a time-dependent solution, but for problems in which you are concerned only with a steady-state solution, it is possible to perform a steady-state calculation.
The amount of lift generated by an object depends on how much the flow is turned, which depends on the shape of the object. In general, the lift is a very complex function of the shape. Aerodynamicists model the shape effect by a lift coefficient which is normally determined through wind tunnel testing. For some simple shapes, we can develop mathematical equations to determine the lift coefficient.
The Thin/Surface feature allows you to convert solids into thin solids or surfaces. The feature can operate on both active and frozen bodies. Typically, you will select the faces to remove, and then specify a face offset that is greater than or equal to zero (>=0). You can make a model’s thickness in one of three directions of offset:
In this tutorial of a centrifugal pump you will find the basic setup using Ansys Fluent, we will use the pseudo timestep to accelerate the convergence
Source: ANSYS HELP Mesh Copy Control The Mesh Copy control enables you copy mesh from one body to another. This option can be used to reduce the mesh setup time for repetitive bodies/parts….
