Manual Design Studies Using Fluent and Morphing

Engineering Solutions' morphing technology in combination with Fluent can be used to perform design studies manually.

The workflow is the following:
  • Import a Fluent file, containing grid and setup data (*.cas file)
  • Use the morphing tools to modify the grid
  • Export the morphed grid in Fluent cas-format and select the initial *.cas file when prompted

    Figure 1.
  • Engineering Solutions will replace in the initial *.cas file the node coordinate block with the node coordinates of the morphed grid and leaves the rest unchanged.
  • Load the exported *.cas file into Fluent and perform the CFD analysis. A restart is possible by using the flow field from the initial design (*.dat file).
