Material define
Hi, I defined a kind of new material in the material panel. Then in the injection panel, I can not find the material I deifned in the material list. Can anyone tell me how to define a new injection material? Thanks!

Re: Material define
did you press Change/Creat bottom after you define the material?

Yes, I did.
Yes, I did. I can see the material I defined in the material database. But I can not see it under the material list in the injection panel.

Re: Yes, I did.
I think that is due to your new material is not saved in the FLUENT database. But I have no idea about putting a local material into database.

I put it in database
I did put it in the data base. But I am wondering if FLUENT is using two set of material databases.

Re: I put it in database
if you only press change/creat, the data will not be put into database, it is just stored soemwhere as a local data, if you save the case, it will be stored in case file, not in database.
