I need to model a system of 3 reaction, with 6 component.

For introduce it in FLUENT I have activated the species transport after the creation of all the components I need. For component creation I added the material one by one in FLUID section. I selected the 'Fluid' voice in the scroll-down but I need to add the mass diffusivity that is in the 'Mixture' voice. How can I add the mass diffusivity to alll the components?

If I select the 'Mixture' voice whene I create the component I can add the mass diffusivity but when I try to copy the component created Fluent give me an error sayng that the selection isn't  right.

Thank you

If you want to specify each component then you can use multicomponent: that will need rather a lot of settings. Once you've assigned the mixture to the fluid zone you can access the properties from the species part of the tree. If it's turbulent I'd set a mixture diffusivity that's good enough for the materials.

Ok, thank you
