I have a problem when starting the unsteady iteration in Fluent,and it said——"warning:non-positive volumes exist.
Error:divergence detected in AMG solver ressure correction
Error object)

I guess something wrong with my original grid in Gambit?
hELP ME!THANK YOU!

2d or 3d?
if you are working in 2d axi-symetric solver, check out that your domain is in +(xy) plane
if 3d, go back to gambit and examine mesh (icone bottom righ). Choose volume and set the min to 1 and the max to 0.
It will show you negative volume cells

thank you,-mAx-
My condition is in 3D,and i checked the mesh when importing the mesh from Gambit to Fluent,and didn't find negative volume then.
I agree with you that there is sth improper in my mesh,but I've no idea how to improve it,now I 'm trying to use the Boundary Layer or Sizefunction to make a better mesh^
And in your reply,I don't understand the sentence your said that"mesh (icone bottom righ). Choose volume and set the min to 1 and the max to 0. It will show you negative volume cells",would you please explain it more simply?
Thank you again

choose Volume type (instead of skewness), then set to lower level to -1 and the upper to 0
Then update

...
After importing your mesh in fluent, do a Checkmesh and pay attention to warning regarding negative volume
