How to create 2 meshes inside each other
« on: December 23, 2013, 10:01:56 am »

I am trying to simulate the performance of under floor air conditioning system for an IT room and the performance of the server rack.
Is there a way to create a big mesh representing the room and small mesh boxes representing the IT racks.
If not, is there any other means of moving both heat and air movements from inside on box or obstruction to the outside (The big room mesh)?

If you start out with the big mesh, you can use PyroSim's mesh splitting tools to chop up the mesh and refine the sections that you want to be more detailed.

Just to add to what Charlie has said. You do not want to embed a small mesh with a large mesh. They won't communicate with each other.
