hi
everyone . I was simulationg a centrifugal fan ,and i decompose the fan into threeparts: the inlet zone ,the blade zone and the volute zone ,and the zones were connected with interface. when i initialize my case ,fluent show the warning message:

Info: Interface zones overlap for mesh interface in2.
This could adversely affect your solution.


can somebody tell what i shroud do ? or what the message means ?
thanks!

First of all it is not an error. Rather a warning or information as it suggests. It merely means that the meshes on the surfaces sharing the interface are not matching. The only way to overcome this is to enforce 'matching' (on the surfaces sharing in the interface) during mesh generation

In anys meshing, you can right-click on the 'Mesh' and select 'Match Control'. Then select high and low faces. Also select 'Axis of Rotation'. Thats it!!
