I have been using ANSYS Student 17.2 since 2 months for my masters degree project. Now my teacher has instructed me to install ICEM CFD for creating geometries and meshing complex structures. But i cant find it in my installed ANSYS version. Please take some time and help me. I need it urgently.
Glad that you have been using our student product for your project.
The stand alone ICEM CFD product is really a legacy workflow these days. It is not enabled by the free ANSYS Student license. However, over the past 5 years the ICEM CFD meshing technology has been progressively integrated into our Workbench platform, the technology is under the hood of the the ANSYS Meshing application. I think you’ll find that the combination of using ANSYS SpaceClaim and ANSYS Meshing will more than adequately address “creating geometry and meshing complex structures..”.
ICEM_ACN is an environment variable that points to the directory where ICEM CFD is installed. If you set it properly and do a “ls $ICEM_ACN” or “dir %ICEM_ACN” you should see a set of directories, “bin”, “lib”, etc.
