    Apply a calculation goal results to another calculation surface

    Simone Storace


      I've used Fluent and Ansys for three years and now I have to use Solidworks for my tests so sometimes I'm a bit confused by the new software.

      For exemple:

      I run the 1st calculation with a cylindrical empty body (excluded from control volume) as surface goal.

      Now I would create a subdomain using this body as a lit and apply the results found on this surface as new boundary condition for a 2nd calculation.

      Is it possible in solid works?

      I've tried to make something similar with transferred boundary condition but the program enables me to apply them only on a rectangular domain while I would impose boundary conditions on a cylindrical subdomain.
