Pre-Analysis & Start Up
The incompressible Navier-Stokes momentum and mass continuity equations are used as the governing equations for this flow. The modified Navier-Stokes and mass continuity equations are as follows, respectively.
A few words on the formatting on the following instructions:
Notes that require you to perform an action are colored in blue
General information notes are colored in black, but do not require any action
Words that are bolded are labels for items found in ANSYS AIM
Most important notes are colored in red
We are now ready to begin simulating in ANSYS AIM. Open ANSYS AIM by going to Start > All Apps > ANSYS 18.1 > ANSYS AIM 18.1. Once you are at the starting page of AIM, select the Fluid Flow template in the top as shown below.
You will be prompted by the Fluid Flow Template to either Define new geometry, Import geometry file, or Connect to active CAD session. Select Import geometry file and press Next.
