Link face meshes for periodic BC with ANSYS WORKBENCH
 
Hello everybody !

I try to attach periodic BC to my geometry to receive an equal number of mesh elements on 4 specific surfaces. Usually, I used GAMBIT with its "link face meshes " function, which worked without any problems. Due to new version of ANSYS I am working with WORKBENCH (Physics Preference : CFD . Solver Preference : FLUENT) to mesh geometries. Unfortunatly, the ANSYS WORKBENCH doesn 't provide the function "link face meshes " anymore, which has been replaced by the "match control " function.
To simplify my geometry, consider it as an cuboid (or ashlar ? ). The front and back surface as well as both sides should be linked for periodic BC. Only the bottom and top surface remain as "walls". So , I used the "match control" function for the front and back surface and it worked. Next, I did the same for both side surfaces and an error occured telling me, that "The combination of different match controls causes conflicts. The conflicts will be at the intersection of the highlighted entities."

I have read through ANSYS Help to find a solution for my problem, but can't find a hint. I hope that you can solve my problem ! If you need more specific information just let me know !

Thank you very much!

Kind regards,

Martin

Temporary Limitation...
 
Sorry, this is a documented limitation at 12.1...

( see the help, 3rd bullet under "Keep the following information in mind when using the match control feature: " )

Sorry, we are working on it...:o

Simmon, have you solved the problem? I am encountering the same problem now. please let me know if your ansys has solved it or not, I am currently using ANSYS 12.0 and not sure if this version has the bug fixed or not.
thanks.
