Hello everyone,
I am doing fluid structure interaction using Ansys transient structural and CFX.The solver was started running smoothly.while running it was getting crashed.Then later I restarted.Then it shows the above error(Ansys CFX exited with return code 1.).But it is also showing that no isolated fluid regions were found.

hi,,
i am also getting a same error message...is to due to lack of proper boundary conditions or due large timesteps??
have you found the answer??

CFX has lots of unhelpful error messages and this is a good example.

It probably means the simulation diverged. Can you post the output file? And an image of what you are modelling.

hi glen,
thanks for your prompt reply..

Problem definition:
a flexible plate which is immersed in a fluid flow,placed horizontally and fixed at four sides(square faces in figure).

I have coupled the systems using transient structural and cfx.The domain is created by aplying "boolean" to the fluid region.

But when i try to run the solver,it says "No isolated fluid regions found"...!! Is it because of any error in the interface definitions??? How do you define your interface??? is it because of using boolean option..??
The figures of my domain are attached here..
please help..

hi glen,
this is the outfile i obtained..

The real error is "Fatal error occurred when requesting Total Mesh Displacement for interface." Sounds like a problem coupling CFX to ANSYS. Make sure the FSI run is set up correctly.

hi glen,
thanks for your suggestion.

I think it is the problem with the interface..The interface i have chosen includes the two large horizontal faces of the plate,in the structural region and the similar faces in the cavity formed in fluid region, as interface in the cfx..
Is this definition correct???..Does more faces needed to be added for interface..??
Is it necesssary that all the faces immersed in the fluid region needs to be considered as interface..??

Have you looked at the FSI tutorial examples? That shows you how to set up FSI cases.
