The Enclosure feature is a tool used to enclose the bodies of a model so that the material enclosing the bodies can be assigned to something such as a gas or fluid in the ANSYS Mechanical application. The feature takes either all the bodies or selected bodies of the model as input, creates a frozen enclosure body around those bodies, and then cuts the bodies out of the enclosure. The frozen enclosure body will have a Fluid/Solid Property (as seen in the Details View when this body is selected) set to Fluid. This operation will not delete any bodies currently in the model. All types of bodies will be enclosed but only Solid bodies will be cut out of the enclosure. See Fluid/Solid Property for more information about editing the property.

In this tutorial you will learn how to use Enclosure tool in Ansys DesignModeler. You can develop this tutorial with any geometry.

We share the same tutorial using ANSYS Fluent.
