Hi,

This error is common in moving mesh - I assume you do not have any moving mesh. If you have a static mesh then you either have a very poor mesh where some elements have been turned inside out (sometimes too much smoothing can do this) or the normal vectors are wrong (this is easy fixed in ICEM).

Hi,

No that will not work and that is where the error is coming from. You need to have a finite thickness in the z direction. Also read the FAQ: http://www.cfd-online.com/Wiki/Ansys...tion_in_CFX.3F
