heinx055 is on a distinguished road
hey all,

I am using workbench and trying to do a FSI simulation of a simple nanowire in a flow field and I can run the FSI by flowing the tutorial on the ANSYS site though the issue I am having is it appears as though there is no force on my wire and not quite sure why. The two things I have noticed is that in the tutorial with the probe(if your familiar) they have a connection between the fluid and the solid, I have tried to set up a connection but when I select the Contact faces the contact bodies show up but not the target bodies. I am not sure as to why this is the case and I feel that this may be the issue I am having. If anyone has any thoughts that could help.
