I am trying to mesh the empty space inside this tower. The inlet pipe at the bottom gets meshed from the inside but because i have a conical geometry inside the tower i cant fill in the space around it with a solid and hence cant get the empty space inside the tower meshed. The mesh is only generated on the walls.

Can someone guide me with this?

diamondx will become famous soon enough
that was not possible before version 14. now you can do that with version 14.5 and up, you need to create a body point (not sure it's called this way), you need to tell ansys where to mesh, otherwise it will go and mesh the solid part
New to ICEM CFD, try this document -->

This has been done in ansys 14.5. Could you please tell how to actually mesh the empty space in the middle.
