Is it possible to do 2D fsi setup using fluent in ansys workbench, if it is possible then how to define the fluid solid interface in the structural part by selecting only edge for the 2d geometry.

If i have to do the 1 element thick assumption, Then for the simple case of a pipe with one inlet and outlet, where the wall of the pipe is subjected to fluid-solid interaction. Then how to define the different boundary condition and also which surface I should select for the fluid solid interface.

You can also find the model they used for the tutorial in the CFX examples (if you have CFX licensing that is), or on the online Ansys tut Base

 March 5, 2013, 07:30 #6 New Member   Marcin K Join Date: Mar 2013 Posts: 10 Rep Power: 4 I'm far from beeing an expert, but the most obvious choice would be to pick the faces responsible for the transfer of forces between the fluid and solid. In your pic, I understand that the "Solid wall" in the pipe wall which will interact with the pressure of the inside fluid, so the logical choice would be to pick the 2 faces that are connecting both domains. As for the boundary conditions, a velocity or pressure inlets are both viable, as are the outlets (here, I think the pressure outlet would work fine, where you could specify the pressure you want to achieve).
