 March 14, 2006, 10:19 hard link mesh #1 jojo Guest   Posts: n/a Hello everybody, I have a meshed sector of a cylinder and I want (of course) the sides of the sector to be periodic. When I do the hard link of these two faces, rigorously as described in Gambit Guide, the link is obtained but the mesh is totaly destroyed. Has anyone experienced that? Thanks for your help, Regards.

 March 15, 2006, 14:37 Re: hard link mesh #4 jojo Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, Ravi. Thank you a lot for your help. I am for sure a stupid guy but I did not manage to do what you say. I have cleaned the mesh and linked the two faces (with reverse and periodic options). Then, I have re-meshed the object. I had a first issue when defining the periodic boundary: the faces were not linked!? I guessed the overall faces were linked but not the one of the cells. I thus re-did the hard link procedure... and the mesh was destroyed. Do you see any solution? Cheers.

A window opens asking abt the face-1, vertex-1, Face-2 and vertex-2. be sure that you select all the four correctly and then check the box infront of periodic and then click apply. Now go to volume mesh and apply the mesh . now while applying the periodic BC you need to select both the faces that are linked and then apply periodic BC. hope u understood the procedure. feel free if u have any questions... Thanks Ravi Duggirala

I exactly did as you say but when I want to export the mesh, I have the message: 'WARN: Continuum Entity default-fluid does not contain any valid entity and is not written'. The case is thus unreadable for Fluent. This does not happen when I do no hard link. Thanks in advance.
