NFX-T: 1005 Simple Two Phase Gearbox

Set up a simple two phase gearbox for drive train oiling simulation using SimLab for CFD-nanoFluidX solution.

To capture the forces and torque measurements, refer to NFX-T: 1020 ParaView Rendering and NFX-T: 1030 ParaView Post-processing In-plane Streamlines and Vectors.
Note: A PDF version of this tutorial is available in the Model Files section.
In this lesson you will learn how to:
  • Select Unit System
  • Import CAD Geometry
  • Define SPH Flow Solution
