Flowing Intake Manifold
Hello everyone I am having an issue with Floworks 2008. I have a model of an intake manifold that was designed from a plug then hollowed out with the shell command. When I try to run this object in floworks with the geometry checker there appears to be no fluid volume inside. Is this a problem with the shell command? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Bill

Define the BC's then you try the geometry check command and see the response.

Re: Flowing Intake Manifold
A model for internal analysis must be fully closed. If it is not closed, the fluid volume is zero. But this is not required for an external analysis.
