By default, your local materials list will include a single fluid material (air) and a single solid material (aluminum). If the fluid involved in your problem is air, you can use the default properties for air or modify the properties. If the fluid in your problem is water, you can either copy water from the ANSYS CFX database or create a new “water” material from scratch. If you copy water from the database, you can still make modifications to the properties of your local copy of water. The editing or creating of material properties is done in the Create/Edit Materials dialog box. To display the Create/Edit Materials dialog box, select the Create/Edit… button in the Materials task page. See the following sections for detailed information on how to change material properties.
Ansys CFX has a very large library with different materials that we can use for different simulations. Adding new materials is very easy.
The NACA four-digit wing sections define the profile by:
First digit describing maximum camber as percentage of the chord.
Second digit describing the distance of maximum camber from the airfoil leading edge in tenths of the chord.
OpenFOAM is the free, open source CFD software developed primarily by OpenCFD Ltd since 2004. It has a large user base across most areas of engineering and science, from both commercial and academic organisations.
You can set the Use Automatic Inflation control so that inflation boundaries are selected automatically depending on whether or not they are members of Named Selections groups.
Pipe wyes are used to to allow one pipe to join another pipe at some degree or angle. As the name suggests, the pipe wyes are Y-shaped pipe fitting devices.
You can make animations based on keyframes. Keyframes define the start and endpoints of each section of animation.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to use the Match Control tool in Ansys Meshing. Match Control allows duplicating the mesh in a body. We have two option Match Control Cyclic and Arbitrary.
The Body of Influence option is available in the Type field if you selected a body and Use Adaptive Sizing is set to No. Using this option, you can set one body as a source of another body
The Sphere of Influence option is available in the Type field after you select an entity such as a body, face, edge, or vertex.
