I am a fluent new user and I have same problems with non-positive volumes. I would like to know if it is posible to repair a mesh whith this kind of troubles by means of the "adapt" menu or I will have to remesh my geometry. Thanks.

You can first try and fix this problem inside of the fluent solver by doing a repair-facehandedness command:

grid > modify-zone > rfh

After you do this, see if any negative volumes still show up. If they still do, you will have to go back to the pre-processor and adjust the mesh density.

I have had this problem with tgrid a while back. The repair was simply to save the mesh and then re-read it back into tgrid. A mesh check should then run okay and you can save and export this mesh to Fluent.

If the non-positive volume problem is due to left-handed faces then use this command in the console: %repair-face-handedness. Again, a mesh check should confirm the problem is fixed.

I am not sure if these 'fixes' can be applied in Fluent 5- I guess you're using Gambit. It's worth a try.

I sometimes have the same problem in 2d axysimmetrical cases where the axis is y=0. In that case it is enough to translate the whole domain of a negligible quantity (Dy = 0.001 for instance). See if this is your case... Bye Max

Hi,

For Non-positive volumes, I have the following suggestion to you.

Use Iso adaption to locate the cell of negative volumn and then use gambit to modify the mesh.

yours, Desmond
