I would like to know how to make appear a line body in the meshing tool, after i created it in the Design modeler (2D) because for now i'm just able to see only the surface body i've created

To be more clear, i will illustrate this with a very basic example. Let's say i've created a rectangular surface and i draw a line in the middle of my piece ( which will be my nozzle exit when i'll use it in fluent). After created surface body from sketch (for the rectangular surface) and line body from sketch, when i switch to the meshing tool, my line body is not appearing in the tree view and i don't know i will not be able to define a velocity inlet boundary conditions later in fluent..

Hope someone will be able to answer my question,thank you very much

This is not how you setup a 2D example in WB...

Instead, just use your surface body...

For the inlet or outlet, you don't need a separate line body, instead you just need a named selection for the edge of the surface body. This ensures that the boundary is properly associated, etc.

You can set the named selection up in the CAD tool, DM or ANSYS Meshing...

I made a demo/tutorial to show how...

Have fun.

I really need ur advice on this
I am try to model scour under pipelines lying on a seabed using FLUENT
I intend to use eulerian multiphase model which requires me to create two zones(water and soil).
I have used projection to split a surface into two under Design modeller to create the two faces.
The issue i have is that when i try to mesh the surrounding of the cylinder with ansys mesher; the mesh under the pipe is scattered because of the projection line that is there. how do i get around this
I have attached the picture of the mesh i got
pls i will appreciate any contribution
