MikeITA is on a distinguished road
I'm simulating the behaviour of a PCM during the melting/solidification phase. The container shape is very simple (an holed cylinder) and for save computing power and simulation time I would simulate only a part of the container (a quarter of the cylinder section). So the question is: can I simulate at the same time a symmetric and axisymmetric 2D figure? And also is possible to show a countour of the entire cylinder in the results panel for having a wide vision about the cylinder? Thanks
