Hello,

I'm trying to simulate a single bubble shape oscillation and I needed help in modelling it.

I created the grid using Gambit. The problem I'm facing is that the bubble interface is not being exported.

I have a made a square domain. At the center of the domain I've created a edge who's shape is that of the bubble. I meshed the whole square domain and then tried to split the mesh along the bubble interface. I'm getting some errors saying that the split is unsuccessful.

When I tried by creating two faces but meshed only the square domain, the bubble interface doesn't get exported because the other face is not meshed. I do not want to define two separate faces which are non-intersecting and mesh them, as that will not result in a structured mesh.

What I need is that the whole domain must be meshed as shown in the attached figure http://imgur.com/0lFY5jD. Then split the mesh along the bubble boundary so that it allows me to specify two different zones.

I'm fine if the grid is generated in any other software (Hypermesh or Pointwise or ICEM). At the end of the day, I just need Fluent to identify the two zones explicitly alongwith the bubble interface. Also note that the initial shape of the bubble is complex (not a conic).

Since the problem is 2D I'm attaching the .dwg and .tin files

Please Help!

For the 2d-picture, in Gambit before you mesh both domains, you need to split the square with circle. Is gives you 2 connected domains: the disk and the square with an hollow.
Now if you want to work with interfaces, you need to disconnect both surfaces.
The quickest way (my point of view) is to copy the disk anywhere, then delete the disk at its original place. Now define both interfaces, and move the disk (copy) at its original place.
Both surfaces are disconnected, and you can mesh

The problem with splitting the square domain along the curve is, I'll not be able to get a structured grid. I needed a structured grid (all the cells must be rectangles).

everything is possible
Here is on of many ways to get full hexa mesh
It is not nice, but I did it very quick

That's a good idea! But I also needed to grid within the circular region, to simulate air.
