This is my first post here, so hello everyone

I have to do some calculations on combustion chamber, with geometry made in ICEM, but I'm not familiar with this software. I need to export mesh in fluent format.

I have tried:
1. Open given project in ANSYS ICEM CFD 11.0
2. Output -> Solver Setup -> Output Solver -> Fluent_V6
There is also Common Structural Solver to choose with options: NASTRAN; ANSYS; LS-Dyna; Abaqus; AUTODYN;
I don’t know which one to choose, so it is NASTRAN.
3. -> Write Input
and I get something like this:

.msh file is successfully created.
But problems start when I want to use obtained .msh.

Imported to Fluent 6.3.26 generates output:
Code:

  1. Note exact events leading to error.
  2. Save case/data under new name.
  3. Exit program and restart to continue.
  4. Report error to your distributor.

I also can’t import mesh into Gambit 2.4.6.

I try: File -> Import -> Mesh -> FLUENT 5/6 3D

And then I get Windows error, like this:
http://vernetest.vipserv.org/error.png

In Gambit window I have:
http://vernetest.vipserv.org/gambit_window.png

And in start up window:
Code:
Locating Exceed installation ...

As I said, Im not familiar with ICEM, so have no idea what may cause that problems. I would be very grateful for any help


Edit:

SOLVED!

Problem was caused by computer. Mesh imported in 4-core PC works correct.

I also come across this. just save your project by other name, and try.
if not solve then delete all the things and do repeat your project.
