Hi,

After creating grid interfaces and grid checking in my domain I found left handed faces. Is it possible to correct this problem? Thanks in advice. ff

Thanks Erwin. I already used that function but after as well as before I have left handed faces in my domain (without negative volumes). MY final mesh was build using two separate meshes which are merged with fluent utillity tools. Those separate meshes are valid without left handed faces and without negative volumes. After creating grid interafecs left handed faces apears but as I say without negative voluems. Any tips?

Thanks in advice, ff

type at the FLUENT console:

(rpsetvar 'nonconformal/cell-faces 0)

before creating the grid interface. Make sure that you type the paranthesis as well.

enjoy!
