Mesh IMPORT
 
Hi all, Can we imort the mesh generated by using GAMBIT (mesh generator in FLUENT) to CFX? If we can them in which format it should be?

Thank you in advance tuks

Hi,

In CFX-Pre select Import Mesh, and you'll be able to see the mesh formats CFX can import.

Regards,

Rui

From what I see in CFX-Pre, a Fluent/Gambit import is not listed. ICEM CFD can read the Fluent .msh file - then write back out for CFX. As far as I know, Gambit pretty much meshes only for Fluent. CFX-Pre can also read CGNS, Patran, Nastran files - but I doubt Gambit can write those.

Hi

I've created mesh with gambit and imported them into cfx-pre by exporting/importing an ANSYS mesh.

I've found that it is best to define the boundary conditions using the 'node' setting, rather than the 'element_side'

Hi, Well there are a few bugs in Gambit. What you can do is to take the mesh to T-grid and export the same in neutral or CGNS format (would work fine from Fluent-6.1 I suppose).

You can then import the neutral format mesh into CFX-pre.

As stated Gambit is most well suited for Fluent only.
