Hello everybody,
I'm a new CFD user, I hope this is the right place.

I'm trying to do the first exercise of the Fluent's user's guide, not in 2D but in 3D, but I have some problem with the mesh in Gambit.

I built the geometry as the union between two cylinders and a portion of a torus. But I can't mesh the volume of the torus........ why? What can I do?

Thanks for helps

P.s. where I can find some simple exercise to enlarge my knowledge (a part the user's guide of Gambit and fluent)?

Check whether you have deleted the split surface created from the intersection.

That is there should be no internal surfaces inside your CV.

As guidance regarding tutorials the help for FLUENT is available online though for an older version but you might give it a shot.
