Default Import ICEM Mesh to Fluent

Hello,

I used ICEM for a long time but I am new to Gambit and Fluent. I just wonder how I can import the mesh generate by ICEM into Fluent 6. By the way, I generated the mesh using ICEM on Windows system while Fluent 6 is running on IBM AIX system. Is it possible to import the mesh into Fluent?

Thanks,

Fluent Beginner

Yes it is. When you open Fluent just open the mesh file and it will open in Fluent. This is how I open mesh files created in Gambit.

Thanks Bob. But I am still not sure how to import the mesh into Fluent. Follow is the operation I conducted:

1. Start Fluent located on AIX system by SSH from Linux system:

ssh userid@server

2. Click File->Import in Fluent program

But I can not find ICEM option. We have ANSYS, CGNS, FIDAP, GAMBIT, IDEAS, Nastran, Patran, Fluent 4 Case, PreBFC, Partition.

Could you please explain it in more detail?

THanks,

Fluent Beginner

You don't go to file-> import. You go start to the file-> open. Open the mesh file as if you were opening a regular fluent case file.

Dear fluent beginner,

I have seen ur id from cfd online website. I am working in gas turbine combustor. I am using gambit as my preprocessor. my geometry consists of many holes(dome holes(670 in no.,flare holes(790 in no.) etc) Meshing those volumes which contains this holes is becoming difficult. Some volumes i could able to mesh. But some other volumes it is telling gap in face meshing is more. Because of this i am trying the same geometry in ICEM CFD SOFTWARE(just started learning). I heard that meshing difficulties won't be there in icem cfd software. Is it a good idea or what should i do.If u can help me in this regard i will be grateful.

thankyou

jyothish
