Embedded Solid Domain

Reposition or modify one or more parts between design iterations while keeping the geometry of the static solid and fluid domains constant. This prevents the need to re-identify the fluid volume for each design iteration.

Note: If you only need to analyze the fluid part without considering the surrounding geometry, then you can skip defining the embedded solid domain, and go directly to defining the fluid domain. The solver will treat everything that doesn't have a boundary condition as in contact with a solid part.
Before defining the embedded solid domain, you need to define the bounding solid domain.
  1. On the Fluids ribbon, select the Embedded Solid Domain tool.

    Tip: To find and open a tool, press Ctrl+F. For more information, see Find and Search for Tools.
  2. Select one or more parts that can be moved and modified before running a new design iteration.
  3. In the microdialog, assign a material.
