Default Two or more materials
Posts: n/a
can we specify two different materials in fluent, both are not mixing with each other though..

for example, one material is air and the other is ice.

Can we specify properties individually for both these volumes?

Are you looking at two phase flow. Can you post a picture of your model?

No it isnt two phase flow,

When i give define-->boundary conditions, i highlight the fluid in the dialog box-->set--> then specify the volume modeled as air.

this particular way i can specify density, specific heat, enthalpy etc for the air.

i want to do the same for ice too, but dont know to apply these values for ice.
