Flattening spheres with ANSYS Meshing
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi all,
I'm trying to generate a mesh for a geometry with a large number of particles. The particles are in contact (particle-particle and particle-wall), which is a problem for mesh generation. To solve this problem I need to flat the spheres (Fig1 attached).
I know that some Mesh Softwares can do this automatically, flattening the particles locally in regions where the distance between two surfaces falls below a predefined appropriate value.
Do you know if ANSYS Meshing or ICEM CFD allow to do this?

If I was not clear please let me know.
Thanks,
Patricio Alberto
