Windkessel models extension for Fluent (17.x Release)

    • lauren.johnston


      I am trying to add the WKM extension to my version of Fluent (17.1 on Windows) (extension here: https://catalog.ansys.com/product/5b3bc6857a2f9a5c90d32ee8/windkessel) but I am having issues.

      My extension is successfully downloaded and loaded through the Ansys workbench ACT extension manager but the extension does not appear in my case tree and when I type "/define/windkessel" into my command window I get the result "invalid command [windkessel]". 

      I have followed the tutorial steps so cannot see where I may have gone wrong. Any advice please? 

      Thanks, Lauren 🙂

      If you're still using Fluent 17 you really need to be updating. Whilst we're not able to support the ACTs fully, the section of text you want to re-read is:

       "boundary conditions using Fluent [Contains source code]"

      You may find the scheme GUI calls have changed so some work may be required.
