Creating Moving Breps

A Few Notes

  • “Domain” indicates the generator works for outer bounding geometry generation

  • “Modifier” indicates the generator modifies an existing geometry, such as a tank. Note that this only works in conjuction with select built-in “Domain” Brep Generators

  • “Impeller” indicates the generator will create an immersed boundary component, which represents an agitator or “impeller” geometry

  • “Model Units” indicates the model unit system currently selected in the GUI

Number Of Baffles

Number of baffles

Baffle Thickness

Baffle thickness [Model Units]

Baffle Width

Baffle width [Model Units]

Baffle Offset

Baffle offset from tank wall [Model Units]

Baffle Angular Offset

Baffle angular offset defined about vertical Y axis. [deg] This is typically used to provide a small offset from the principle planes , avoiding coincident definition with output planes, which would otherwise obscure output plane data with static baffle walls.

Plane

Pipe connection plane. This parameters characherizes which of the six sides of the bounding box the pipe intersects.

  • XP : Plane normal to x direction on maximum bounding box extent

  • XN : Plane normal to x direction on minimum bounding box extent

  • YP : Plane normal to y direction on maximum bounding box extent

  • YN : Plane normal to y direction on minimum bounding box extent

  • ZP : Plane normal to z direction on maximum bounding box extent

  • ZN : Plane normal to z direction on minimum bounding box extent

Center X

Pipe center point X on Plane

Center Y

Pipe center point Y on Plane

Center Z

Pipe center point Z on Plane

Pipe Length

Pipe length. Used for ThroughWall attachment pipe types. If left to zero, the pipe is given a length half of the tank dimension in the direction of the pipe orientation

Attach Type

Pipe attachment type.

  • Flush: Pipe is trimmed to tank surface.

  • ThroughWall: Pipe extends through the tank wall at a length PipeLength
