 October 9, 2010, 10:27 urgent : solid bodies in a cylinder #1 New Member   Join Date: Jul 2010 Posts: 22 Rep Power: 7 Hi every body I'm trying to simulate the flow field in a cylinder, containing some spherical solid bodies with a random arrangement . can anybody tell me what will be the true strategy for creating the geometry? 1. subtracting the volume of spheres from the volume of the cylinder that results to a mesh with high skewness 2. meshing entire of the cylinder , considering the spheres as solid domain and meshing them separately, i tried it , but after postprocessing, I saw the fluid passes through the inside of solid bodies whereas the fluid should pass over the spheres. if none of them is the true, so what will be the true way for creating and meshing the geometry that result to a true flow field? kind regards

You may try Blocking the whole geometry and then remove the blocks inside the spheres. This way of doing might help. Last edited by raghav; October 10, 2010 at 00:43.

Then you need to find what is causing high skewness. __________________ In memory of my friend Hervé: CFD engineer & freerider
