 June 30, 2011, 15:12 Total Thickness of Inflation Layer #1 New Member   Keyma Join Date: Aug 2010 Posts: 16 Rep Power: 8 Hi, I trying to determine the total thickness of my inflation layers defined in CFX Mesh. When I defined the inflation layer, I used the "Total Thickness" option with the following parameters: Number of Layers = 8 Maximum Thickness = 0.002meters Growth Rate = 1.2 I read the description of the maximum thickness and it seems to suggest that "Maximum Thickness" refers to the maximum thickness of an individual inflation layer. When I called the outsourced Ansys Help Line the person told me maximum thickness represents the total thickness of all the inflation layers. So now i'm confused... Can someone please let me know if there is a way to determine the total thickness of all of the defined inflation layers?

Growth Rate = 1.2 (This is the expansion ratio for each consecutive cell in the direction of the inflation) Hope this helps. soheil_r7 and haitham osman like this. __________________ -- Mechanical Engineering Sydney, Australia
