lucasiervolino is on a distinguished road

I'm new to CFD simulation and currently working on a project aiming to trace the drag prediction curve of a 26ft aluminum hull in a multi-phase (air-water) simulation. Currently using Workbench and Fluent to do the simulation.

So far so good in the problem construction and meshing but currently facing issues defining the parameters of the simulation. Given my lack of experience, I can't seem to 'find' where to input every bit of information regarding the experiment, such as the behavior of the interaction water-air layer, contour change in results graph and hull weigh.

Also, I need to trace a curve of drag x velocity but don't know how to change inlets inputs from a value to a function, or if I'm supposed to do 1 simulation for each velocity to compose the graph. The main objective is to accurately simulate the planning phenomenon of the hull.

Any kind of help would be appreciated.


Best Regards,
