Default Problems meshing a pie-shape cross-section bar-suggestions or workarounds needed

Hello,

I want to obtain (using gambit 1.1.0) the resulting mesh if I meshed the one of the ends of a pie-cross-section bar-shape using wedge-primitive (tri-element vetex at the centre of the pie-shape) and swept it using the cooper volume meshing scheme along the bar (the sides mapped). Simple.. However, I need the end caps to be periodic boundaries and so need to hard-link them in gambit to ensure they are identical. Hard-linking them makes them invalid as cooper scheme source faces.

Does anyone know or can suggestion how I might obtain the desired meshed volume and keep the ends identical for periodic boundaries?

Thanks in advance!

Sorry, the previous problem should be for a curved bar of constant radius about the x-axis. Thus the pie-shaped ends of the bar need to be rotaionally periodic.

Thanks again
