Default Tranfer geometry from ICEM to CFX mesh

Hi All,

I have an external surface file for my geometry in IGES format. I can read it at ICEM. In design modeler I cannot read it correct as it is surfaces only. I worked on it in ICEM and I have the correct geometry. How can I transfer it to Design Modeler or CFX Mesh? I'd like to make an inflation layer to be used for SST turbulence model.. How can I do this in ICEM...

Adam

You could try exporting it as a Parasolids, then reading this into DM or CFX-Mesh.

Why not just mesh it in ICEM? Generate a prism layer off of your wall surfaces.

Thanks Johnny for reply. I understand that inflation layer is better than prism. Is that correct CFX experts?

I forget to mention that I also want to modify the geometry which is much easier to do by design modeler than using ICEM.

An inflation layer and a prism layer are the same thing. I'd argue that since you have more controls in ICEM, that you would end up with a better quality mesh. But you could probably use either tool.
