CFD ACE,need help
Hi all,
I am doing a part time research degree and working on the study of a multiphase flow (coal particles/air) through a pipeline using CFD ACE. Could i get some help with the following questions please?
1.What format have the files (pipe drawings) need to be before they can be loaded onto CFD ACE?
2.How do i convert 2d pipe drawings from autocad to the required format onto CFD ACE in 3D format?
3.Because i do a part time research, have no previous experience and work from home, i have found it difficult to get help on using the CFD ACE software? Are there books available that take you through the steps of using CFD ACE?
Thanks in advance,

1)ACE+ allow to import .DTF , nastan, patran,IGES,STL format file files.
2) you can import your geometry in IGES format or you can export your CAD file to GEOM or ICEM-CFD then extrude tour 2d into 3d and then export into DTF. this DTF you can use in ACE+ simulation.
