I try to run some parametric analysis with fluent and it's just not working.
I tried a very simple problem. The geometry is just a block. The height of the block and the air velocity at the inlet are the parameters.
When I update my design points, I get the same output (the mass flow) everywhere, it doesn't matter what I use for input. I don't get any error message.
I share my test files, as well as a screenshot of the table of design points.
Do I need to activate something to run parametric analysis? (I'm using a student version)
I would be very thankful if someone could help me.

It helps when you mention the version of ANSYS are you running is 19.0

I couldn't find where in FLUENT you defined the airflow output parameter.
I created a new output parameter called mass-flow-output-op and that is working the way you want it to.
I know this is just a test model to work out how to use parameters but have you evaluated if those velocities of air would result in Turbulent flow vs the Laminar flow you selected?
I attach an ANSYS 19.0 archive file of these edits with the suffix Peter.
You don't have to use Google drive to share files unless they are > 120 MB. Follow these directions to create or use Workbench Project Archive files .wbpz that can be attached to posts you make here using the Attach button. I also attached your model that was in the Google link above with the suffix Original.
