Circular bounded plane
I just want to begin with saying that I am fairly new to Ansys Fluent and therefore the answer to my problem might be something very trivial, but I am nevertheless stuck.
I am simulating the gas flow through an inlet manifold which is redirecting incoming gas from a tangential to axial direction. I am interested in finding out the pressure loss at a certain area.
I quickly drew this picture in paint but I don't know if it's understandable:p, but the gas enters as indicated by the red arrow and exits axially through the pressure outlet represented by the red circle in the middle.
My problem is that I would like to define a circular bounded plane like the blue circle in the picture (In 3D located above the outlet), but I canít seem to find how:o. Please help
Ok I solved it, found how to do it in the post processor:)
Re Circular bounded plane
Can you explain how you managed to do this? This sounds like something I'm trying to do at the moment.
Thanks in advance,
I can start off by saying I am running Ansys 13, and Fluent via Workbench, as I see I forgot to mention this in my first post:).
I have unfortunately not found any way to create a circular bounded plane in Fluent. But I found how to do it in CFD-Post once my calculation was complete.
There it is quite easy: just right click on User Locations and Plots/Insert/Location/Plane and under "Geometry" expand "Plane Bounds", under type pick circular.
Because I only wanted to use the plane for a few contour plots and some simple calculations, this was good enough for me.
Anyway hope this helps:)
Thanks Hento, I'll give that a go.
