how to create a wall as a boundary condition for external flow in solidworks
 
Hello Everyone,
I'm new to the software. I'm doing cfd on a car and would like to know how can I create a wall under the car as boundary conditions for external flow. This wall will represent a road.
Your thoughts and insights would be appreciated.

thanx for the link but I'm looking for help with SOLIDWORKS FLOW SIMULATION as thats what im using for an analysis.

hi mangotango
you will want to use boundary condition > wall
and then set a speed on that wall

this assumes you either have modeled a wind tunnel and have a "floor" to apply it to OR you have modeled a ground and have sunk your external analysis computational domain slightly into it

thanks jpc i have created a block and inserted part of my computation domain within it.
