Greetings to all fellow users of this forum!

I am back with another specific and important question regarding ICEM CFD capabilities.
To make a long story short, what multigrid capabilities does ICEM provide?

I want to be able to create multiple grids and use them with our external, in-house code (that means I will not use any of the integrated solvers to simulate the airflow, such as Fluent for example).
Is there a way to create multiple grids?

I searched online, but found nothing in particular. The only possibly related thread I found was this:
Multigrid? ICEM?

As you can see, it is a little bit vague.

Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks for taking the time to read this,
SlapGas

Multigrid is Unstructured with structured grid ??/




OR Multigrid is Multiblock grid with different Type block ??/

Thanks for replying.

Our codes multigrid subroutine is coded by me. There are currently no multigrid capabilities.That means your question is something of no importance right now. I just want to know what ICEM provides. If there are advantages in using it, I will adjust my code accordingly.
If using it in a specific way is more powerful than me creating the grids by myself (or taking a fine grid and dividing cells by 2, 4 etc), then I should add functionality in my code.

My Friend

I know one of the best Advantage of ICEM is in Make multiblock


For Example You Can make infinite Block around Airplane Or Wing or ... in very short time
And The better than is You can Modified Each of Subset Block Very easy in One Seconds


i think it is not bad base your code on ICEM Block and Topology
