Hello, I am generally new to ANSYS and I am trying to simulate a quench tank. I need to subtract a fluid volume from the tank for a CFD analysis. I have the solid parts of the tank in the design modeler including the walls as well as a cylindrical piece of pipe moving through the center of the tank, which is being cooled. I do not know how to separate the pipe from the quench tank as its own body in the design modeler, and I do not know how to subtract the volume where the fluid coolant in the tank would be (all volume which is not a part of the tank's features). I could use some help and/or tips with this if there are any good suggestions. Thank You. The tank and its features including the pipe are shown within the screenshot.
