Hi,

I modeled a rectangular pipe with dimensions 125*72*1020 in Catia and exported it to Gambit.I used the clean up tools like clean short edges,holes etc to clean the model and meshed the volume using hex/wedge and cooper options.The mesh seems to be good and connected in all the ways.When I read the mesh in Fluent i see the error Reading "C:\Documents and Settings\student\mesh with no probes.msh"... 208818 nodes. 208818 mixed wall faces, zone 2. Error: no cells in zone, id = 0, ind1 = 1, indn = 0Reading Cells: failed while reading section 12.

Clearing partially read grid. Error: Read aborted due to critical error. Error Object: () Error: Error reading "C:\Documents and Settings\student\mesh with no probes.msh". Error Object: #f

Why I could have got this.Please advice me.

Thankyou all, Swapna

Hi,

Remshing it will solve the problem. While exporting look in to command window of for possible error. Yopu should be getting mesh was successfully exported message.

Yes,when I exported the mesh I see the mesh was exported successfully.What do you mean by remeshing?You want me to delete the old mesh and redo the mesh or something else? Do I need to limit the mesh size depending on the dimensions?

if ur geom is simple. give a global size in vol mesh which is reasonable. and use tet grid. leave it.

if ur geometry is having small faces then u need to mesh faces and then vol mesh.

ensure the version selection is correct. using the default 2d version to open the 3d mesh may be the bug.

I received the same warning when trying to read in a mesh.

My problem was that the mesh I was trying to read in was still being copied to the import location via ftp from somewhere else. So, an incomplete mesh file was to blame for the warning message.

I'm hoping that this might help somebody and save them some time.

I had a similar problem and I found the error in my mesh. I created a 3D mesh with Hypermesh and I did it with using the drag function. So in my final mesh I had 2D and 3D elements because I needed surface elements to drag them to 3D. After deleting the 2D elements Fluent accepted the 3D mesh.

I hope this helps to solve some of your problems

I had the same problem. I solve this problem just by changing the path of the mesh. Just change the path of the mesh (the folder which you want to read the mesh)! In the current address, fluent cannot read the mesh.
