Hello,.

 

If you go into the Initial Conditions part and select any of the volumes that are already 100% fluid, you will able to assign HOF to them

Ok, now I see what I was doing, In the initial conditions I was selecting the surfaces and then trying to apply the HOF, But I have to select the volume tool instead of surfaces.

Thanks for your help.

Good Day Mingyar

 

Sorry to hijack this thread but we are interested in conducting free surface simulations as in the link below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNKHf937Qt0 (I assume you are attempting to do a similar tutorial)

 

What version of Simulation CFD do you require to do this?

Thanks for the reply

 

are you using the base level of CFD 2014?

 

On the Autodesk website there are three options.

 

Simulation CFD 2014

Simulation CFD Advanced 2014

Simulation CFD Motion 2014

 

I would like to make sure what the correct version would be before continuing.

Thanks for the quick response.  Do you know what the lowest level of CFD 2014 can be used for the free surface simulation?

We are not interested in simulating mechanical parts in motion (fans, pumps ect.) and CFD Motion might be out of our budget.

Im not sure and its not on this link http://www.autodesk.com/products/autodesk-simulation-family/compare/cfd-products

 

But maybe you can download the 30 day free trial of the basic one and see if you have the free surface option.
