I met a problem about Part for Inlet or Outlet using ICEM. I create a surface called Inlet and produce a Part of this Inlet based on the surface. After meshing, I import the mesh in CFX-Pre, but there is no this Inlet option in CFX-Pre, there are only all kinds of Walls option.
Who could help me deal with this problem? I guess whether I need select the 4 curves of the Inlet surface as the Part also (except the surface of Inlet)?

Many thanks in advance!

diamondx will become famous soon enough
is your geometry in 3d or 2d ? did you use blocking, make sure associations are done. i usually create parts first then start meshing. Also may be this post can help solve the problem:
Boundary conditions problem in ICEM and Fluent

3d. I don't use blocking. It is an unstructured mesh. Yes, I also create parts first then start meshing.

I guess whether I need select the 4 curves of the Inlet surface as the Part also (except the surface of Inlet)? I only create a Surface called Inlet and produce a Part of this Inlet based on the surface not including 4 curves of the Surface.

Many thanks!

No Inlet option, but wall only?
Did you define a new boundary, and select the target "Inlet" surface as the inelt? 2D mesh, line element, is not needed to define a boundary, surface is enough.

Yes, only walls. For "Did you define a new boundary, and select the target "Inlet" surface as the inlet?" You mean in CFX-Pre?
However, I mean I only create a Surface as Inlet and then produce a Part called/as Inlet based on the surface in ICEM not in CFX-Pre.

Actually, I find the solution. Since my Body doesn't include the whole space. So we can't see Inlet option in CFX-Pre.

Many thanks also!
