Building Flow Domains with DesignModeler e-Learning Presentation

This presentation accompanied the Building Flow Domains with with DesignModeler ANSYS e-Learning session, originally given in February 2013 by CAE Associates.  To view a recording of the session, click here.

The first step in any CFD analysis is to identify and extract the flow domain to be considered. When using traditional CAD programs for complex geometries, building the flow domain can be a daunting task.

ANSYS DesignModeler allows you to simplify your working geometry and extract the flow domain without changes to the original CAD file. ANSYS DesignModeler's powerful analysis-specific geometry tools help prepare your model for meshing.

In this ANSYS e-Learning session, CAE Associates' Project Manager Mike Kuron demonstrates the procedure for extracting internal and external flow domains using ANSYS DesignModeler.

Topics Include:

  • Importing CAD geometry
  • Geometry simplification tools
  • Flow domain extraction techniques
