 April 1, 2009, 07:30 thanks but... #3 New Member   AKO Join Date: Mar 2009 Posts: 4 Rep Power: 8 thank you mate! but i did it! i meshed each edge by that counts, with interval count so after that how should i mesh the faces and volumes? i mean should i again mesh them with interval count or gambit would apply mesh edge for faces? do i use the default or again use the interval count? if yes so what's the number for the meshing the faces? for example in one page do i use the 180X50 (9000) for interval counting or no? furthermore how can i be sure that i have 180X50X60 mesh?

 April 1, 2009, 08:14 #5 Member   zhao peng Join Date: Mar 2009 Posts: 41 Rep Power: 8 you can directly mesh the volume after meshing the three edges,interval count is not used here. the total number of girds(540000) can be counted by summarize volume mesh in gambit or grid info check in fluent.

 April 1, 2009, 17:10 thanks #6 New Member   AKO Join Date: Mar 2009 Posts: 4 Rep Power: 8 this is a simple duct with that dimensions as i have told it's a duct that flow are going there and there is a nozzle in the bottom of duct that inject the cross flow on it. i have an experimental and numerical study on it and i'm going to simulate it again by LES instead of k-e so i should mesh it on gambit and do my project on fluent, so i should mesh it like the model, unfortunately my win has some problem and i'll send that picture until 2 days, and i will apply your advices best regard ako
