Hi thanks for the respond forget the Bump I will give you my channel dimensions instead which I want to draw it as 2D and simulate it in CFX its length is 8 m and height is 0.1 m may you please draw its mesh to me?

Yes I want to simulate it as two phase flow problem using CFX as I know CFX not solve 2D problems some members in the forum suggested me to draw it as 3D mesh with extruding the third dimension I am really new with ICEM and do not know how to do that hope you help me with it?

Draw four points 2. Draw four curves from these points. 3. Draw face from four curves Blocking : 1. Initialize 2d planner blocking 2. Make vertex and edge association. 3. set edge mesh parameters 4. Check premesh Mesh. 1. Right click on premesh and select option "convert into unstructured mesh" 2. Go to output panel and select Fluent as solver (Yes Fluent as solver!) 3. Set boundary conditions : in, out , wall 1 and wall2 3. Output mesh CFX Pre 1. Open mesh and select type as Fluent (.msh and .cas) 2. You will notice that CFX has extruded mesh by one cell and making it 3d as CFX is 3d solver. 3. Define symmetry condition for these two faces 4. define other boundary conditions.

I failed to load the mesh neither with desginmodeler nor with turbogrid (which exist with CFX launcher)? may you mentioned me the steps for importing it in these programs?

Mesh was designed in ICEM.

Do not use design modeler and Turbogrid for these files. As Design Modeler is used to create the geometry and turbogrid is specialized tool to mesh the rotating machinery.

I have created geometry and mesh in ICEM. Double click on .prj file and it will open both.
After that I output the 2-d mesh in Fluent format (idea by Simon) and open it in CFX-Pre. CFX-Pre will automatically extrude the 2d mesh into 3d by adding the one cell thickness. Double click on .cfx file it will open file in CFX-Pre

 April 19, 2012, 10:35 #12 Senior Member   Join Date: Jan 2011 Posts: 173 Rep Power: 6 Thanks a lot Far again for the answer. If you said that when you draw the mesh as 2D fluent mesh and open it in cfx-pre then it will be automatically extruded from 2d mesh into 3d? hence I need to ask if I draw the mesh in Gambit as 2D fluent mesh output file and then open it in cfx-pre is it will extruded into 3D too?

Hi Far how are you. I am try to set the problem setting reference to the mesh you sent me before couple of days ago. You said that I need to define symmetry condition for two faces of the geometry the problem I not see these two phases in your mesh file? In Bump tutorial they set the front and back boundaries into symmetry which they not defined in your mesh file? only four boundaries defined (inlet-outlet-top wall-bottom wall)?another thing why you select positive value for the z-direction and how you set it as (-0.001-0)?
