Hi! Im simulating 3 d geometry of a pump having a regenerative impeller. Although the file is read in FLUENT, I'm not able to define the turbo topology for the same. Can anybody help me wid da same???

Actually I am analyzing a centrifugal pump (full 3D model) with casing.While i define in the turbo topology in the boundaries I select Hub-the hub,Casing - the casing (outer domain),Blades- the impeller blades, Inlet -inlet of the impeller, Outlet- Outlet of casing after selecting these and defining I get this error
"Not Valid Topology: Not defined"

Thanks

I have also selected only for the impeller like

Hub-hub
Casing-Shroud
Inlet-Inlet
out let -The interface of impeller
Blades-impeller vanes

i get the same error.Not Valid Topology: Not defined

Should i define anything about the theta...


Thanks
