Define different BC to surface of a cube

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I want to calculate the drag coefficient of a simple CAD made car.
Therefor I create a huge cube around the car. My first conditions were left surface inflow and right surface outflow. The other surfaces were set to BC wall. I think this simulation works fine.´
In the next step I wanted to set three of the other four surfaces to BC FreeSurface and the last one to Wall.
No the first problem I want to solve: Every time I select one of the surfaces which are not the inflow and outflow AcuConsole always selects the four surfaces and not only one. So I am not able to select three of the four surfaces (pink surfaces).

The next problem I want to solve is: How can I calculate the area of the car which is normal to the velocity of the air?

I hope you understand my questions and you can help me with these problems above.

Best regard

Patrick

Hi Patrick,


1) Organize the surface elements which you want to assign different BC in a different component on HyperMesh.


Import the file in HyperMesh, create a component collector (with similar properties as remaining walls), go to-->Tools-->Organize-->switch to elements and dest component to newly created component and click move.


2)For calculation of the the area for CFD analysis, you should always consider cross sectional area.


C/A= height * width (Of the car)


For plotting or etting the drag values.You can use acuprobe.create a UDF. Use the drag formula.
