Ansys meshing
 
I used to do the simulation with FLUENT & GAMBIT. Now it is changed to ANSYS 12, which does not include Gambit. How can I do the meshing with ANSYS 12?
Thank you.

Ansys 12
 
Ansys 12 has design modeler in which u design the model, Meshing in which u mesh and then fluent in which u analyse the model

Thank you, Praneetha.
Do you mean I also use design modeler do the meshing?

Praneetha December 23, 2009 14:30

No, Design Modeler is for sketching the model . Then meshing is done by another software called MESHING 12 in ansys after meshing the model it is then imported to fluent and analysis is done

Praneetha, thank you for your quick reply.

In the following link,
http://www.ansys.com/academic/academ...t-features.asp, it shows that ansys academic version has several meshing tools:
meshing(Is it what you mentioned in meshing 12?),
ICEM CFD meshing,
Ansys CFX-mesh.

Can you elaborate on their strenghs or weaknesses? What is most suitable for FLUENT analysis?


Happy holidays!

It depends on what you want to do exactly. ANSYS CFX mesh is much easier to learn than ICEM but less powerful, in my opinion.
