CFD Simulation of a Flu Virus Spread in a FLight Cabin
Hello everyone, I am fairly new to this site and Ansys.

After looking around the web for a while i have realized that this is by far the best site for cfd users. Congrats to Admins Mods and ofcourse Users without whom this would be not around.

I have a few questions regarding a project that i am working on.

1) Trying to build a flight cabin with 3 seats in each row of 3 rows.
(right now i am building it in Catia V5R19, as i dont know how to do it in Gambit) (Please give me in ur input in which one i should build my model in Catia or Gambit?)

2) The cabin does not have requirements for material however it will be a floor with 4 sorrounding walls and the ceiling will be slightly curved like a Flight Cabin. The ceiling will have three holes on top of each row of chairs (i.e. inlet of air-conditioner) Thus total of 9 inlets for total of 9 chairs.

After i make the mesh, i need to use fluent to solve for flow.

I have roughly 20 days to make the model and mesh in gambit do you think that is enough time to do that as i am not exactly familiar with this at all.

3) If i make the assembely in Catia, what should i look out for so that i have to encounter minimum problems in importing the model to gambit to mesh.

Appreciate everyone's help, Please do respond as this is a group a project but sadly :( i have to work on it myself as my groupmates are kind of useless.

I have given myself a GOAL to Finish Model and MESH by 22nd of January 2010.
