Hi All,

Wondering if anybody knows how to extract the fluid volume between the helicoidal baffles in

the attached file. The fluid is spiralling downward. 

Any help is very welcome.

The idea is to subtract the helical baffle from a new solid that an extrusion of two circles at the OD of the inner tube and the ID of the outer tube.

However, the construction of the helical baffle is tangent to both diameters, which makes the subtraction difficult. To make the subtraction easy, change the dimension of the profile of the baffle to be 1 mm smaller and larger than the OD and ID of the fluid volume.


Attached is an ANSYS 19.0 archive.  If you would have said what version of ANSYS you are using, I could have used that version.

Thanks Peter.

The version I am working is 18.0.
