Use the Material tool to assign materials to solid bodies.

  1. From the Flow ribbon, click the Material tool.
    Figure 1.

  2. Select solids.
  3. In the microdialog, assign a material model from the drop-down menu or select Material Library to create, edit, and manage custom material models.
  4. From the guide bar, execute the command in the following ways:
    • Click to confirm your selection and remain in the tool.

      This allows you to continue creating instances and helps you visualize and edit instances with the legend.

    • Click to confirm your selection and exit the tool.
  • Click the Material tool satellite icon to view a list of solids in the model and quickly assign materials.
  • A solid assigned as Void will not be active in the simulation. Utilize this option to run a flow simulation only in a conjugate heat transfer model.
