Key Software Capabilities
Creating a clean mesh that follows the part geometry closely can greatly improve the accuracy of your CFD simulations. When designing complex parts, like heat exchangers with conformal channels or lattice structures, this can be a tricky task.
In this nTop Live, Maiki Vlahinos, Senior Application Engineer at nTop, shares tips for meshing fluid volumes in nTop. He also describes a method for defining an inflation or boundary layer in a fluid volume.
Watch and learn how to:
- Create meshes for fluid volumes in nTop
- Apply a boundary layer or inflation layer
- Improve the accuracy of your CFD simulations
