Fluent Tutorial 18 BC's
I was provided a Fluent tutorial entitled: "Tutorial 18. Rotor-Stator Interaction Using Sliding Meshes." Unfortunately, two meshes have to be merged using TGrid, a program that I do not have access to. I have the two mesh (.msh) files, but when I try to import them into Gambit the boundary conditions do not carry over. If anyone has used this tutorial or knows the defined boundary conditions, I could really use them. When I run each of the mesh files in Fluent, the boundary conditions are there, but the meshes cannot be run simultaneously. Or, if anyone knows of a way to get around this problem, that would be of tremendous assistance. If that is not possible, the actual boundary conditions would work just as well. Thanks

Re: Fluent Tutorial 18 BC's
If you have FLUENT and GAMBIT you should have the program you need to merge the two mesh files (it is also available on the Pre/Post CD). It is executed by typing, at the command line (provided your FLUENT_INC environment variable is set correctly),

tfilter tmerge3d (for 3d) and tfilter tmerge2d (for 2d)

Follow the prompts from there on...
