Hi guys
I have a 3D block in ICEM which contains fluid body and inside it I have smaller 3D part which is solid. after converting to unstructured mesh, in B.C section I select solid for solid volume and fluid for fluid volume. but when I run it in fluent while I want see the contour or vectors there is flow inside the solid part!! what should I do in this case? I know if I delete the solid part there wont be any flow because there wont be any mesh inside the part. but in my case I have heat transfer inside the solid so I need the mesh (I think).
I will be appreciated if you help me what should I do?

"Hey Guys

I found the solution. In my case although I have created two different body "Fluid" and "Solid" but all blocks inside the domain were same. So I needed to convert the blocks of Solid part to different name. For this purpose I did right click on the Solid part in left hand side windows and selected "Add to part" from menu. The I clicked on " Blocking material, add block to part" and selected All blocks inside the Solid part which I wanted to be different block as Fluid body. And now I have two different block with two different body and every thing up to now is OK."
