TAGGED: Discovery Live, enclosure, fluids
February 28, 2018 at 9:40 pmdoatisSubscriber
Is there a way to create an enclosure and then use that for a fluid flow calculation? If I create an enclosure (Setup>Enclosure) that just creates a bounding box, it does not boolean-out the solid it encloses. If I create a fluid flow simulation, it doesn't let me select the enclosure (by default). If I enable enclosure selection, it still doesn't seem to operate correctly. Almost as if doing a fluid simulation requires the solution to create the fluid domain, rather than doing anything on my own ahead of time?
Basically, how do I manually create a fluid domain (internal or external) and use that for the fluid simulation?

Discovery Live allows creation of enclosure which can be used later in simulation process. Please find attached a video which shows an enclosure created and then used in defining fluid flow simulation. On similar lines, you can first create internal fluid and then use it in fluid simulation.
If the method shown in attached video is not working at your end, can you send a test geometry for further investigation?

Naresh Patre - Thank you so much! That method works, not sure what I was doing wrong before. Chalk it up to user error. Thanks!
