 July 11, 2003, 16:37 Specifying Periodic Boundary #1 Puneet Guest   Posts: n/a I am importing a readymade plot3d formatted turbine rotor grid in gambit. However for specifying the periodic boundary conditions when I try to periodically link the two faces together, A major part of my volume grid gets eaten away. Is there a way out of this?

 July 17, 2003, 08:54 Re: Specifying Periodic Boundary #2 gelislim Guest   Posts: n/a Hi Puneet, The reason is that gambit regenerates one of the face meshes to assure that they are conformal. Try to link faces before meshing the volume. Good Luck

 July 17, 2003, 11:50 Re: Specifying Periodic Boundary #3 Puneet Guest   Posts: n/a Well How do I make the faces conformal and apply the periodic BCs if I have a grid that has been provided to me rather than I generating it in gambit. Any solutions.

Steps are: 1) Define each faces that will be periodic using different names(lets say wall-1 and wall-2) in gambit and write the mesh file 2) Read the mesh file into fluent. After issuing standarts commands (grid check, grid scale etc...) use define-boundary conditions menu to change the fluid properties(if the periodicity is rotational). Define rotation axis,direction and speed of fluid. 3) Change the type of wall-1 and wall-2 to interface 4) Use text user interface(TUI) to reach /define/grid-interfaces menu. Issue make-perodic command.Here,you need to specify the face id numbers, periodicity angle and name of periodic boundary to be created. 5) Finally, check your grid again and be sure that Fluent gives correct periodicity angles on TUI 6) Define other bc`s, make solver set up and start iteration. Good luck
