Pressure distribution into Mechanica
Do we need a special installation of ProMechanica, for importing a pressure distribution on a surface from FloEFD (for Creo) into ProMechanica?
Thank you for any information

Hi Maxime,
no, you shouldn't.
Do you have any troubles applying the pressure distribution?

Hello Boris,
Now it is ok, I found the option in pressure load's panel
Now I have to play a little bit with this tool, because ProM is asking me the value of the pressure, (but it is supposed to be calculated with FloEFD).
I will run a job with a pressure of 1 Pa to see what FloEFD is exporting exactly ...
From the pressure load panel, I understand I loaded an extern field coefficient and not a true pressure load
anyway, I will digg it
