ANSYS DesignXplorer problem
 
hi guys
i want use ANSYS DesignXplorer in the ansys workbench to improve the efficency of a centrifugal fan. now my question is :
1.i mesh the impeller in the turbogrid ,and transfer the data to fluent to do cfd simualtion ,but how i shroud set the periodic boundary because turbogrid just transfer only a piece of the whole impeller to the fluent ?
2. i separately mesh the volute and inlet zone in icem how can i transfer the two part to the fluent which has the impeller mesh already?

Are you using ICEM CFD 14.5 that has the Workbench add-in?

If so, you can drag and drop the output cell from the ICEM CFD and TurboGrid meshes to connect them to the Fluent cell.

ICEM CFD 14.0 and earlier were outside of WB and therefore more difficult to use with ANSYS DesignXplorer...

thanks for replying,I am now using ansys workbench 14.5 . I can drag and drop the ICEM CFD or TURBOGRID mesh cell to fluent ,but i cannot drag and drop them both to fluent cell .
