Default Help! I want to break the symmetry of my problem

Hi all

I have simulated a turbulent combustion flame by assuming axisymmetric model, so only half of the domain was defined and used for computation.

Now I want to see the results after simulating the entire domain (e.g., symmetry is not longer assumed). I believe that I need to change the original mesh in GAMBIT for this purpose. Is there any chance that I could use my original GAMBIT file (.dbs) and just duplicate the other half of the domain? Do I really need to define my mesh from scratch?

Please, help me on this.

DAVID

Thanks.

Is there any "reflect" option in either FLUENT or GAMBIT?
