Hello to everyone, I've made some simulation on star-ccm always modeling the fluid region: i. e. a rectangle with a wing-shaped hole for studing flows. Now I make a more complex wing: how can I make the fluid region around it in star-ccm? I hope you understand my problem... thanks in advance

When I understand you right you have built a body and around this body the fluid shall flow.
You have to create the "fluid body" - I call it negativ body.
I use Catia for this (bool operator - fast way - maybe somebody knows a faster solution?!). May 25, 2009 05:57

yes it's right but I'm using proengineer: does it have the same command?

I don't know. I don't use proE. Maybe your "help" can help you.
I think it should can do the same.

1. Import the geommetry
2. Representations -> Import -> Create Surface -> Create Block Surface. In this step you will create the "wind tunnel"
3. Wrapp it!
