I am going to make a 3D model of a wingsuit and then run simulations using cfx or fluent. Does anyone know if there exist a sort of a "standard" human body for implementation into a CAD-program such as Autodesk Inventor?

Interesting question, I typed "Human body modeling" in google search window and got a lot, I guess you will have to check these results, please tell us what you selected, for sure that would inspire a lot of the forum readers

I am doing the same for my master thesis,but i have yet no idea how to set the primary conditions,do you have any ideas?i am new to ANSYS CFD and would be grateful of any kind of help.Could you send me please the simulation details and files you have already done?

You can search for "human body cad" and get the following link:

https://forum.solidworks.com/message/307784

or probably better search for "human body character model". There you get some tutorials how to use "blender" for this task.

A commercial package which does what you want is Maya. Just search for "maya cloth".

Thank you very much.I do have a CAD Model,i have done all of that by scanning a basketballist,importing the point cloud into a CAD program,and obtaining my model,i am new to ANSYS and i do have lots of problems with its settings:
We want to compare the CFD results with wind tunnel files

Inlet and outlet boundries should be stored far from the object, to what extent?



How much is the reference pressure? Is it atmospheric 101325 Pa?

Is Mach. Number 0.7?

The wind tunnel operating conditions for validation of experimental data provide the entire temperature range from how much? T0 =?



Total energy is Heat Transfer option?

Turbulence and Shear Stress Transport k-epsilon?

How much is Angle of Attack at wingsuit in wind tunnel tests?





Boundry details:

For Mass and Momentum Cart. Vel. Components?

How high is flow direction?

In Turbulance: Intensity and Eddy Viscosity Ratio?

In Heat Transfer: Static Temperature =?
