Default Mesh conjunction in CFX

Hi everybody,

Now I am doing simulation of a fluid mixing problem involving several pipe branches at the main tank with CFX. The mesh files of the pipes and tank have been generated separately. How can I combine all this mesh files in CFX-Pre? I know in fluent you can make use of non-conformal mesh operation, but I have no idea how can I do the same thing in CFX. Can anybody give me some kind help? Should I do that in CFX or at mesh generation stage priorly?

Hi,

If the meshes do not match at the intersection you use GGI interfaces to connect them. It's discussed in the documentation.

Hi Glenn,

I have read parts of GGI documentation before. In my problem, one side of the interface (a wall of the tank) is larger than the other(the junction part of a pipe). For the tank wall with a pipe, a heat flux condition has to been imposed on the remain non-overlap surface. I now try the Fluid-Fluid surface to find the answer, but if you share some of you experience that would be too nice.

Hi Twiti,

Currently you cannot specify a boundary condition on the non-overlap region; the code applies a free-slip adiabatic wall. When 5.8 is released this summer, you will be able to specify any wall boundary you like.

In the meantime, you will have to edit the meshes in ICEM CFD or whatever mesh editor you have in order to create the regions.

Regards, Robin
