I am new to the Ansys simulation. I am trying to simulate the flow over the vane.
The vane is made of elastomer. Due to water flow, the vane will be deflected.
I have a few questions.
A. I tried to Import the above figure in the Ansys by converting to IGES (using Solidwork). But during meshing, it shows the one surface body itself. I couldn't able to separate or suppress fluid domain and solid domain. Any solution how can we do it? Using a single surface body, I cant able to perform the boolean operation. To solve the problem, I had created a fluid domain and later on the solid domain in solid work and imported them respectively overlapping each other. Is it the right way to do?!
B. I am using transient Structural Analysis system for the solid domain. When I clicked on the analysis setting and clicked on loads, Fluid-Solid Interface is greyed and can't be used anymore!. Is FSI cant work with the 2D figure internet suggest something to use 1 element thick assumption. What is that? How can I use that?
C. I am also missing the Coupling from my workbench, I tried to reinstall it. but I couldn't see it.
