[Geometry]Simple Room Model
Dear Friends,

I would like to simulate a HVAC model for a single room with windows on the exterior wall.

However, I have no idea how I do make a geometry model for the room.

As you know, there is a similar model in tutorial 6 of CFX documents but it does not have a geometry file(it starts only a Mesh model).

How do I model the room has 6 surface walls (EXTRUDE or thin surface), how do I make windows on the wall and how do I make a heat source like a radiator panel on the wall?

Please help me…

Thank for your attention,

Re: [Geometry]Simple Room Model
Instead of the "CFX" tutorials, you need to look at the "CFX-Mesh" tutorials. These describe geometry creation with DesignModeler and meshing with CFX-Mesh.

They are in a different place to the CFX tutorials! If you have ANSYS CFX 10 or 11, then:

- Launch ANSYS Workbench.

- Goto the Workbench help menu (*NOT* the CFX help menu)

- Goto the section on CFX-Mesh

- Goto the "Tutorial" sub-section of the CFX-Mesh help.

- Follow several of the tutorials. They are quite good and will teach you what you need to know about both geometry building in DesignModeller and meshing in CFX-Mesh.

Also, you need to look at the DesignModeler help for more details. I suggest you download and print the CFX-Mesh and DesignModeler documentation PDF files from the ANSYS Customer Portal, as they are easier to use than the online help.

Regards, Andy

"...I suggest you download and print the CFX-Mesh and DesignModeler documentation PDF files from the ANSYS Customer Portal..." where is this site from?

Go to, then look for the links to the customer portal from the front page. You need your ANSYS customer number, and you need to set up an account (give your email etc), but once you have done so this it is a useful place.
