 April 29, 2006, 14:54 Meshing axisymmetric geometry #1 Prachi Guest   Posts: n/a I am trying to create a mesh for an axisymmetric geometry in ICEM. I read about creating a 2D mesh and extruding it. I dont understand how does one create the associated surfaces and the related boundary conditions required by CFX. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

But I do not understand how an axismmetric geometry piece could be created by extruding 2-D surface. It can be revolved instead.

While extruding a 2D surface mesh to create a 3D mesh you can only define following parts / body; 1) A single part name for all side surfaces 2) A part name for end surface 3) Body name of extruded 3D mesh These options can be found in extrude mesh dialogue box itself. But, if you want to define anything other than above (like defining different part names for different side surfaces) then it's not possible here. This is as far as my knowledge reaches. If you find some way out, please post it online so that we also can learn about it. Kind regards & best luck. Chirag

After having done this one can easily create parts and assign different boundary conditions.

Then just leave name of side family field empty... and ICEM will assign side elements to corresponding families automaticaly. At least it worked in ICEM 5.1
