Preparing the Model for Analysis

To prepare the model for analysis:

  • Make transparent the model geometry that encloses the cavity so you can see the flow trajectories when you view results. Turn off RealView graphics to adjust the transparency.

  • Make sure you have only one inlet and only one outlet.

  • Enclose the inlet and outlet openings with lids, which must be solid features, such as extrudes.
