need help for generation grid
hello every one i need your help about generation grid. i am working on simulation of turbulent flow in complex geometries Especially in curvillinear geometry i must Realize a code for resolve this problem. so i am looking from a program based on generation grid to develop it to my object please help me i am Beginner in the generation grid domain i am usully working on orthogonal grid

Re: need help for generation grid

If you are a beginner (like myself) I would recommend using a tool such as Gambit to assist you in making a grid. There is adequate documentation floating around the internet for you to learn to use Gambit.

Good luck

Re: need help for generation grid
Try fiddling ur hands on Ansys ICEM CFD its capabilities are comparable to Gambit but is more like drawing grids with ur pencil on the screen

Re: curvillinear duct

Don't use softwares with pirated licenses. There are free softwares available on net and one of them is gmsh. It's free and downloadable and good. ICEM and Gambit have there pros and cons, however, geometry may be complicated for writing a code to generate a grid for that but by using any of these softwares you must be able to do it in a few hours or may be minutes. They are pretty fast. And even for simulation you may use something like openfoam. It's freely downloadable.

Re: curvillinear duct
thanks Vinod for your answer i am traying to found the gmsh softwar i hope that it is helpful. but openfoam what is it

You can download gmsh from here.
