Hi everyone,

I've just registered and have already got a question for you. I'm currently working on my final diploma thesis for a car manufacturer and I need your help. There's an issue where rain is leaking through the door seals, running down the window, then down the inside of the door and then onto the electronic control boxes destroying them. The manufacturer wants me to simulate the running water and it's path to prevent the problem in the future.
My Problem is that I don't know where to begin or which software is capable of doing this. The models of the cars are all in Catia V5. I have access to Ansys or Ansys Workbench and would preferably like to work with one of these applications.
Could someone please recommend a way of going about this please.

Thanks very much. I'm looking forward to seeing what some of you recommend.....
