Hey guys,

can someone explain to me (maybe with an example) what a '2d locator' as mentioned in CFX is? Is it just an area that I have specified (f.e. an inlet? )as oppsed to a volume?

Thank you already

A 2d locator is a named 2d region of your mesh. These names are generated in the meshing software you are using.

2D means it is a 2D mesh region. That means a boundary face, but could also be a cross section through a 3D mesh. It is not a 3D mesh (which is a volume mesh) or a 1D mesh (which is a line or edge mesh).

Dear Glenn,

this helped a lot in general understanding. Sometimes the manual isn't enough explanation and I need to hear it in other words
So thank you for your reply
