    Results as boundary

    Kamil Zyskowski


      do you have idea how to simulate air flow of duct and then use results to simulate air flow in the room?

      Attached picture is basic sample - real duct is complex and I'd like to do separate calculation with high level for mesh and then take results (velocity profile on surface) to put them into room analysis.

      More - on the duct outlet(s) I'd like to use perforated plates which now can be used on pressure openings

      Any idea?


      BTW. Ansys has no problem with that.

          Unfortunately you cannot do that. The only transfer of filed values from one model to another is the transfer of the Initial Data. You can also export the hydrodynamic forces to apply as loads in the Simulation Solver by Tools/Flow Simulations/Tools/Export Results to Simulation (the transfer is internal -  no external file is created).


          A work around (but not exact transfer) is to approximate the data at the duct outlet by a function, and then use that function (formula) in the formula definition of the boundary values.
