Boundary layers in pipes 3D
 
Hello,
I am new to CFD, I work with gambit 2.4.6 and Fluent 6.3.26 and my experience are the tutorials from Cornell and built-in documentation of the software.

I have created some simple cases of flows in tubes. I want to create boundary layers at the walls of the pipes so that I can check the turbulent flows in them. In 2D I can create boundary layer as shown in the tutorials but in the 3D cases it is not possible. Can somebody give me some instructions in doing so?

Why is it not possible ???? If its a simple pipe without any bends go for an O-grid structured mesh. The simplest and the best.

in 2D select edges for attaching your BL.
in 3D select surfaces...
