How to create and define multiple domain?
Dear Experts,

I want to simulate a double pipe heat exchanger. How do I create the geometry, i.e., the outer wall (finite thickness), annular fluid, inner wall (finite thickness) and inner fluid? Just give me a outline.

Re: How to create and define multiple domain?
What package you are using? CFX-Build,Workbench with CFX-Mesh or ICEM? (For me ICEM is more suitable, but with some CAD package).

Hi deLuther,

Our organization has not renewed the license yet but it is under negotiation. Currently we have obtained license for Fluent/Gambit. So please tell me how to do it using CFX-Build.

Thanks for your time and attention.

Re: CFX-Build
try to do the following: 1. greate a tube having the inner tube diameter, then make b-rep, 3d , 2d, meshing and write file.

2. Repeate step 1 with a tube have the inner diameter of annular flow (outer dia of the inner tube), with a different name

3. Repeate step 1 with a tube have the outer diameter of annular flow, with a different name

4. Go to CFX pre and import the two files in one. Therefore, you will got three domain. The 1st one for the inner tube (fluid type), 2 nd for the inner tube thickness (solid type) and the 3 rd for the annular flow (fluid type)

5. go on

I wish this could help
