 October 18, 2012, 05:22 set solid volume fraction in 2D #1 Member   Join Date: Oct 2011 Posts: 37 Rep Power: 6 Hi. I am confused how can set some parameters in 2D problems: e.g.: the real problem is a cylinder 3D with volume of 20 cm3. We fill this cylinder with 16 g of powder, density of 1.6 g/cm3. So the solid volume fraction is 0.5. My question is: when we simulate the 2D problem, what would be the solid volume fraction? best regards,

You have to find them and check.
