    Help with simple (?) cfd analysis for school project

    First things first, sorry for my bad english

    I'm currently doing a school project and I figured it's best to solve the problem with cfd. Problem is I never used it. We use Autodesk CFD 2014.

    I'm wondering if it is possible to simulate flow of a liquid between to (metal) plates? The plates are not welded or anything.

    I'm keeping one side wet and I am wondering how long it takes til the other side is wet too. The fluid I use has a very low viscosity.

    I would be very thankful if somebody could help me with this.

    Greetings,

    I believe SolidWorks has a good flow simulator of fluids where you can enter diferents characteristics of the fluid and the materials surrounding it in order to provide a good data output. Also I know for certain you can export the file from Autodesk software without problems. As to the specifics of how this is done I imagine you may find manuals that can show you how to do it in a better way than I would.

    Hope it helps and good luck
