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.

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
