Then I saved a copy of the file, and I deleted the volume (make sure to turn off "lower geometry" option in the delete volume window) and the faces I didn't need. Actually, I deleted the volume mesh (with the "unused lower geometry" option off) first, that way it left the surface mesh on the surface I was going to keep, then I deleted the volume and the extra faces. Hope this helps, and good luck, Jason

I want to model the liquid in the crucible as 3-d, and the gas as 2-d axi-symmetric. If possible, the gas should interact with liquid. I've seen research codes that can accomplish this. Is this possible in Fluent? Thanks, Mike

First simulate the gas as 2d with a "black box" acting as your crucible. Therefore you need some idea, what kind of effect the crucible has on your gas. In the next step, take the results of the 2d gas simulation, transform them into 3d and use as starting condition for the crucible 3d simulation. After finish simulating this one, take the results as starting condition for a new 2d gas simulation. And so on and so on... Iterativ fitting both parts together. Hope, this helps Ralf
