Wind Tunnel Analysis

Hi - I’m trying to run a CFD analysis over a few shapes - would like to visualize flow around the shapes. I’m importing the shapes from autodesk. How do I handle the inlet and outlets? Do I need to create a cylinder around the shapes to set the inlet and outlet, or is there a setting that automagically assumes that? Thanks!

Hi @salwin and first of all a warm welcome! Happy to have you on board :slight_smile:

Do you mind sharing the project with the geometry with us? Makes it easier to understand what you want to achieve.



Hi - I figured it out. Simply using the “windtunnel/external flow”. Thank you!
