 April 6, 2008, 09:58 Meshing of very complicated part #1 Sanjay Jain Guest   Posts: n/a I am trying to mesh volume of water contained by the rotor of Francis turbine(hydro turbine) which rotates. But the shape of the blade is so complicated that there are lots of curvatures in this volume. I am trying to mesh it using Tet/Hybrid-Tgrid scheme but GAMBIT shows message that "Initialization failed; perturb boundary nodes and try again". How to solve this problem? Please....Please help me?

In general I would propose to do surface meshing in Gambit and export to TGrid for volume meshing. For Tet/Hybrid meshes expecially with BL and complex geomtries TGrid is prefered. Regards

 April 6, 2008, 14:34 Re: Meshing of very complicated part #3 Sanjay Jain Guest   Posts: n/a Thanks for your suggestions. I am not going to put the boundary layer. I don't have exposure to TGrid. If I am not wrong I believe that, in TGrid we can do only volume meshing. So I need to do the surface meshing in GAMBIT. In that case also, GAMBIT shows lots of elements having skewness more than 0.97 and surface meshing is also not taking place. I don't know how to came out of it? Please let me know as early as possible. Thanks in advance. Sanjay

An other thing is that you can "play" with Gambit default constants. For example you can increase the upper limit of the acceptable angle e.t.c.

When I am trying to mesh my continuum I have the same error of Initialiation failed,perturb boundary nodes and try again .This is usuualy caused by face meshescheck the skewness of your face mesh and make sure the face mesh size is not too large. I tried to divide my geometry into smaller components and mesh it and even after that I get the same error..I am a begineer with Gambit and Fluent can smebody help me fix my problem Thank you Bilquise

You can also check the surface mesh quality and observe where is the worse cell's quality, it will help to know where is the problem

I have tried cleaning my geomtery but I still get the same error Please advice Thank you Bilquise
