Hi, I am fairly new to ANSYS (I've looked at a LOT of sources and tutorials) and want to simulate flow around a boat hull while also acquiring useful data (drag, straight line ability of my boat, and maneuverability) so I can optimize my boat. I still have no clue as to how to do this and how I can get data from it. My general method is to create 2 groups (air and water) and have those volumes be cut in by the shape of my boat (I'll have empty space where the boat should go). From here I have no idea what to do. I have consulted these sources:
I've been using VOF to simulate air and water, but I really have no idea what plugging in certain numbers and options does. I would really appreciate it if someone could reference me to a definitive tutorial for this. I've been trying to figure this out for a month now to no avail. Should I even use the fluent option?
