33.6 Cell Zone Conditions Task Page

The Cell Zones Conditions task page allows you to set the type of a cell zone and display other dialog boxes to set the cell zone condition parameters for each zone. See Section  7.2 for more information.



Zone   contains a selectable list of available cell zones from which you can select the zone of interest. You can check a zone type by using the mouse probe (see Section  29.3) on the displayed physical mesh. This feature is particularly useful if you are setting up a problem for the first time, or if you have two or more cell zones of the same type and you want to determine the cell zone IDs. To do this you must first display the mesh with the Mesh Display dialog box. Then click the boundary zone with the right (select) mouse button. ANSYS FLUENT will print the cell zone ID and type of that boundary zone in the console window.

Phase   specifies the phase for which conditions at the selected cell Zone are being set. This item appears if the VOF, mixture, or Eulerian multiphase model is being used. See Section  24.2.9 for details.

Type   contains a drop-down list of condition types for the selected cell zone. The list contains all possible types to which the cell zone can be changed.

ID   displays the cell zone ID number of the selected cell zone. (This is for informational purposes only; you cannot edit this number.)

Edit...   opens the appropriate dialog box for setting the conditions for that particular cell zone type.

Copy...   opens the Copy Conditions dialog box, which allows you to copy conditions from one cell zone to other cell zones of the same type. See Section  7.1.5 for details.

Profiles...   opens the Profiles dialog box.

Parameters...   opens the Parameters dialog box.

Operating Conditions...   opens the Operating Conditions dialog box.

Display Mesh...   opens the Mesh Display dialog box.

Porous Formulation   contains options for setting the velocity in the porous medium simulation. See Section  7.2.3 for details.

Superficial Velocity   enables the superficial velocity in a porous medium simulation. This is the default method.

Physical Velocity   enables the physical velocity in a porous medium simulation for a more accurate simulation. This option is available only for a pressure-based solver. See Section  7.2.3 for details.
