Creates a FEM fluid section element for aerodynamic and hydraulic networks


  1. Click on FEM ElementFluid1D.png or choose FEMFEM ElementFluid1D.png Fluid section for 1D flow from the top menu.
  2. Select Fluid type: Liquid, Gas or Open Channel
  3. Select Section type: Pipe Manning, Pipe Inlet etc.
  4. Enter Section type parameters.
  5. Select and add edge.


  1. The card only works with a 3 noded network element type. Information can be found here: http://web.mit.edu/calculix_v2.7/CalculiX/ccx_2.7/doc/ccx/node54.html


  1. An example of the set up of a hydraulic network can be found here: http://web.mit.edu/calculix_v2.7/CalculiX/ccx_2.7/doc/ccx/node13.html
  2. The *FLUID SECTION card is used to model fluid elements for 1D flow. Information on the card can be found here: http://web.mit.edu/calculix_v2.7/CalculiX/ccx_2.7/doc/ccx/node205.html
