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.

diamondx will become famous soon enough
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...

New to ICEM CFD, try this document -->
