I'm following this tutorial ( ) which was written for Gambit. I am working in ICEM. I can't figure out how to apply the boundary conditions (velocity inlet, pressure outlet, axis wall).

I set my solver to Fluent 6, and went to Output --> Boundary Conditions. In this window, I went to Mixed/Unknown-->GEOM-->Create New, and created the boundary condition "velocity inlet" and it asked me to specify a zone. I don't know what the zones are, or how to specify them. Thanks for your time.

Just ignore the zones (leave them as zero). Those get more important if you are doing fancy things such as a rotating zone within a static zone...

If they are all set to zero, then they are all part of the same zone (zone 0, the default zone).

Best regards,
