 January 17, 2007, 04:26 How to fix this? #1 Wilson Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, I am interested in monitoring the pressure contours across the condenser, where in the fans sucks the air from the atmosphere over the surface of the tubes in condenser . I made a sufficient length both before the condenser and after the fan. Boundary conditions are 1.Before the condensor â€" Pressure Inlet BC (which is open to atmosphere) 2.After the condensor â€" Intake Fan 3.After the fan to sufficient length â€" Pressure outlet. This is the way I applied the BC to solve this problem, when I tried for a Grid check , I got a warning in FLUENT stating that - GRID CHECK FAILED and error is Pressure inlet zone has two adjacent cell zones. My question is Whether the applied BC's are right? How to fix this error and elaborate me why I am getting this error? Thanks Wilson

Try applying ur BC's only to the boundary zones ( which is attached to only one cell zone) and check! Rgds, Rajan

Grid check can be due to a negative cell volume or due to following a wrong convention If 2d axisymmetric, you need to use x axis as the axis of rotation. and the domain should be above that, (ie on +y) If 3d, check the skewness? check if any spl convention is to be used for fan boundary, I think there isnt any. - sujith

 January 17, 2007, 14:35 Re: How to fix this? #5 Tim Guest   Posts: n/a I think your issue is with the intake fan boundary condition in the middle of the domain. An intake fan boundary condition is like a pressure-inlet boundary condition and is probably why FLUENT is reporting it as so. Try changing this boundary condition to Fan and applying a fan curve, etc. and then re-checking your grid. That might work.
