I have a 2D closed system with 2 enclosures that are in contact with each other. All walls are "thin", so thicknesses are defined as a BC. For the interior wall, a wall-shadow is created.
When defining the thickness of the interior wall, do I need to double the value (if a single wall is 1mm, since I have two walls, would the thickness need to be defined as 2mm)? Assuming the enclosures are in perfect contact. Or since the wall-shadow also has a thickness (equal to what's defined in the interior wall), do I not need to double the thickness (wall = 1mm, wall-shadow = 1mm, so wall + wall-shadow = 2mm)?March 19, 2021 at 3:08 pmRobAnsys EmployeeNo, you're setting the total thickness, so use 1mm if the wall is 1mm thick. If you then open the shadow it should also show 1mm thick. nMarch 19, 2021 at 3:13 pmJohndmSubscriberRob,nThey are two enclosures that interface each other. Two walls that are both 1mm thick, so at the interface the total thickness would be 2mmnMarch 19, 2021 at 3:36 pmRobAnsys EmployeeOK, set 2mm then. Note, the materials need to be the same as Fluent assumes it's a single wall. nMarch 19, 2021 at 3:39 pmJohndmSubscriberGot it. So the thickness shown in the shadow doesn't actually increase the total thickness?nViewing 4 reply threads
