 October 10, 2011, 06:58 cylindrical mesh #1 New Member   Marcin Join Date: Sep 2010 Posts: 8 Rep Power: 8 Why when using cylindrical mesh there is a plane 1 and 2, so the contact is from 0 - 360 degrees. I have uploaded two pictures demonstrating the problem. And my Q is how to eliminate this line. 1. http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/255/27918353.jpg/ 2. http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/607/33350229.jpg/ BSR

The computation is affected by giving results not accectable in my case. Does anyone know how to guarantee a perfect closure of the cylindrical mesh? Thx Giacomo

 September 11, 2013, 11:45 #5 Senior Member   Jeff Burnham Join Date: Apr 2010 Posts: 204 Rep Power: 9 There's not a problem. In cylindrical coords, like in Cartesian, there are always six boundary conditions per mesh block. The boundaries don't close up. Instead, you set the y-boundaries to 'periodic'. Whatever fluid, scalars, particles, etc. cross out of one y-boundary appear at the same elevation at the opposite boundary. This lets you make a quarter-model of a cylindrical tank without modeling the entire tank space, for instance. If you wrap the mesh 360 degrees around the axis, then you're modeling the whole tank, but you still use periodic boundaries to represent the connection between one end of the mesh and the other.

Regards
