Creating a Fluid Domain Inside a Solid Structure

Application ID: 88481

The majority of 3D CAD files include only the geometry of the product to be manufactured. For finite element analysis, however, you find yourself often in a situation where additional geometry is needed, for example, to analyze the flow inside or outside a device. This tutorial, involving the geometry for an exhaust manifold, demonstrates how to create an extra domain for flow analysis after importing and defeaturing a CAD assembly.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
