Hello

I am new to ANSYS.

I have an enclosure (fill with air) outside of a complicated mechanical assembly (solid).

I want to model the air flow outside the assembly.

Can anyone tell me how to generate mesh only in the fluid (air), instead of meshing in the the whole region of fluid + solid ?

Thank you very much.
