Defining fluid regions in a 2D geometry for a multiphase sedimentation problem
 
Hey,

This is my first time posting on this forum, although I've been a visiting for quite a while. Somewhat of a neophyte regarding CFD, I was hoping somebody could help me with a problem I am having.

The task is to simulate a solid/fluid particle-laden flow. An initial suspension of sand in a water tank (2D, 1X1m) settles under the action of gravity. Making the geometry is itself, of course, easy. However, I'm stuck on how to define different regions as separate phases - an area 0.8m in height must be specified as water/sand mixture.

----------------EDIT------------------------
Just realised how silly/simple a question the above is and have obtained a solution. Please delete the thread.

If anybody could provide tips on how to solve this issue, I would be very grateful.

Thanks in advance!
