When using the CEL variables 'diami' and 'diamj' in a MUSIG fluid simulation, CFX-Pre requires the musig fluid prefix. However, when the resulting Definition File is run in the solver the following error is generated in the first iteration:

ERROR #001100279 has occurred in subroutine ErrAction.
NAME_MOD: Error finding variable "DIAMI_MF1"

There is a conflict in the way these variables are handled by CFX-Pre and CFX-Solver. CFX-Pre requires a musig fluid prefix, but the solver requires this to be absent.

WORKAROUND:<br>Either ignore the errors in CFX-Pre when writing a Definition File, or edit the CCL in a Definition File writen without errors from CFX-Pre and remove the musig fluid...

Q: How does the multiphase model handle the wall contact of several phases? i.e. when an oil layer builds up on the wall, how is this phenomenon modeled and what stimulates further buildup of oil and controls the behavior of the layer in general?

A : The behavior of the oil particles under various conditions is controlled by many factors including the chosen Drag model, i.e. Ishii-Zuber or some other model that might be applicable. The Ishii-Zuber drag model handles sparse and dense dispersed fluid (i.e. non-solid) particles automatically. Details of the Ishii-Zuber model can be found in the documentation: ANSYS CFX-Solver Theory Guide | Multiphase Flow Theory | Interphase Momentum Transfer Models |

For modeling of a change in flow behavior for dense packing conditions, using a drag model that provides a different calculation of the drag coefficient for different packing is essential.
The packing at the walls can be kept within reasonable limits by setting the maximum packing factor (default =1.0). This should prevent droplets from accumulating past an unrealistic packing value.

Other factors like flow field, surface finish, surface tension, etc. impact the behavior of fluid layers near walls.

Q. What can cause the following error message in V11.0 of SImulation when attempting to apply a pressure load from CFX?

"Features are incompatible with CFX license or installation"
Invalid "CFX Surface"

The first error message is incorrect and is the subject of a Bug report (54328) . However, the second message indicates the procedure for applying a CFX load has not been followed. It is apparent now that "Solve" was clicked before you browsed for the correct CFX results file and surface.

If I start 2 serial solvers on a dual processor Opteron machine they seem to both make use of both processors and I am worried that this decreases performance.

We've expanded our cluster by adding an extra computer (designated LROW00013), but we are having trouble starting CFX 10 parallel solver computations.

Is ANSYS/WB supported on Windows Vista?

I imported an assembly from my CAD system into DesignModeler. I turned the assembly into a multibody part and transfered it to Simulation. Simulation created contact elements between the parts even though it was a multibody part. I found that if I change the facet quality in DM from the default 5 to 10, Simulation recognized the multibody part and no contact is created (Tools > Options > DesignModeler > Graphics > Facet Quality). What's wrong?

The contact detection algorithm in Simulation is based on the tessellation of the geometry. The contact detection runs even when a multibody part is imported. If the topology between parts...

Class 3 Error

The normal velocity components of child droplets in the CAB and ETAB breakup sub-models of the particle transport model can be slightly incorrect, leading to too great a deflection of a spray. However, other parameters such as spray penetration length are not affected very much.

This is due to incorrect use of the drag factor in calculating these normal velocity components: the drag on the child droplets should be used, whereas the code uses the drag on the

Is there any way that ANSYS may operate correctly if DEP is enabled?
There is a Windows function of Data Execution Prevention (DEP) which restricts execution of the code placed on the stack or the heap in Windows XP SP2. If a DEP function is used, the brittleness of buffer overflow can be compensated and the virus and worm which perform a code can be prevented.

In the present ANSYS, if this function is enabled, we cannot execute.

Data Execution Prevention (DEP), which is in Windows XP Service Pack 2, performs checks on memory to help prevent malicious code from running on a system. DEP can be enforced through both...

A Definition File, created by importing a mesh generated with the Patch Independent Mesher, fails in the CFX-Solver with the following error:

| ERROR #001100279 has occurred in subroutine ErrAction. |
| Message: |
| REDHDR: locating dataset failed: what=G/NFC where=ZN1 |
| |
| |
| |
| |
| |

No errors are reported during the import of the mesh into CFX-Pre, or when the Definition File is written.

This issue can occur with the Patch Independent meshing feature in the Meshing Application, but in principle could also occur with other ANSYS meshers if geometry de-featuring is enabled.

The fundamental problem is that the patches for the mesh model do not match up with the regions in the CAD model. In particular there are regions in the CAD model that do not have any mesh associated with them. During the translation of the mesh from the Meshing Application to CFX, these regions should be skipped but are not due to a bug. As a result the intermediate GTM file contains regions with no associated mesh.
