efd-meshing, bc
Hello everybody, I started with EFD and I stil cannot find where to find some tool to display mesh. I want to see fluid volume of my model with computational mesh in different cut planes etc..(to chcek cell density in boundary layer and some critical places etc). I also found out that there is some convergence problem when I prescribe heat flux(heat loss)BC on walls in model without solid domain (option "heat conduction in solid" turned off) could you give me please a little help in this? thanks a lot M.

Re: efd-meshing, bc
Click Tools, Options. Click Third Party and select EFD.Lab Options tab Click Display mesh

Now use Results(Post-processing) to see the mesh at different sections

Can you please describe your second problem clearly?

Re: efd-meshing, bc
thanks for advice, regarding boundary condition: heat conduction in solid is switched off, in table defining wall condition is prescribed roughness and heat flux with negative heat flux boundary condition {W.m-2) inlet BC is Total pressure, outlet static pressure. Solving process is stopped after several iteration with error message. When using positive heat flux or wall temperature as b.c. no problems occur.
