Hello everybody,

I am performing some simulations using Fluent via ANSYS Workbench (ver 14.5).
The process I am modelling is a solidification, that's why I would like to start my transient simulation from a steady-state thermal profile of my furnace (top & bottom temperatures).
Given the fact that I use different meshings & boundary conditions, I would like Fluent/Workbench to automatically perform a steady-state calculation before the transient one.

Any advice is welcomed ! Thanks in advance

Would it be possible to set this, either in Fluent using "Calculation Activities" maybe or in Workbench, while linking two blocs (a static and a transient one) ?
