Problem in creating different zones in ICEM-CFD
1 Attachment(s)
Hi everyone.
I am a beginner in ICEM CFD. my problem is that i have been solving a problem of fluid flow through microchannel in 2D, with three separate region, two of them being solids and the middle one being the fluid region.
As i am meshing in ICEM CFD:
1. i am unable to use blocking on 3 regions as when i select blocking, it selects the entire entity as a single geometry, which i don't want to.

2. i am creating different bodies for my problem but when i right click and dispaly info, it says there are no curves/surfaces/mesh parts in the body parts created. (say fluid / solid1/solid2).
and when i export the mesh, it displays only one single zone(the default GEOM) and not the 3 zones i want to.
I have attached the image of my figure with zone's names specified and
Please help... i have read many posts and have tried and falied, but to no avail.

Use a blocking, after splitting your blocks, right mouse button on part, then create, then click on "blocking material" give the name fluid1 and select the block you want to dissociate from solid...
