'Water wading' simulation project by SamPrabhu


#1

I created a new simulation project called 'Water wading':

A vehicle drive through simulation wherein the water passes through high level of water surface. This involves multiphase modeling


More of my public projects can be found here.

Hi @SamPrabhu

Interesting description you have there for this project. Here are a few pointers to help you out.

First, make sure your car model is closed . the one right now is open from underneath. Please also try to simplify it by merging the parts and making sure you have only ‘solids’ and not shells. As a reference see this model https://www.simscale.com/projects/Milad_Mafi/aerodynamics_analysis_of_a_sports_car_1

Further, as you intend to do a ‘Water Wading’ multiphase simulation, it would be necessary to have 2 inlets ( air and water) for the domain. For that you will also have to model the surrounding box with the inlet face split. For more details see this project. https://www.simscale.com/projects/sjoshi/wake_development_behind_a_boat

I hope it helps.
best,
Ali.

Hello @Ali_Arafat

Thanks a lot for the valuable suggestions and I am glad to get the help of Simscale. I have tried to make a simplified model. I would like to know if it is possible to create the inlet face split using ‘Geometry primitives’ (_BaseMeshBox). I couldn’t find any default options to visualise this, kindly let me know if this could be possible.

Sam

Hi @SamPrabhu

CAD modifications are not supported on the platform, so you have to do it in a CAD software. You can use free online CAD tool ‘OnShape’ to create or split the the domain inlet face. Then your OnShape geometry can be directly imported into your project.

Best,
Ali

Hello @Ali_Arafat,

Thank you so much for the hint. I will try working with OnShape to create the exact model.
