 May 4, 2008, 07:14 Need help with statement in Gambit #1 kbs Guest   Posts: n/a Hey to all I need some help with a phrase not understandable to me mentioned on a paper published on the chemical engineering and processing journal at the year 2006 , the author of the paper said: "The 3D mesh (cylinder) consists of 400 nodes per section with a section every 2 degree, i.e. about 55,000-150,000 eight node brick elements. The prediction where performed with a 40 X 500 mesh. In order to verify the independence of the solution on the mesh size, calculations were also made with a grid of 80 X 1000" The question here : what the author mean with this statement " The prediction where performed with a 40 X 500 mesh" ? how can I do this practically through Gambit? Any idea please? Thanks a lot kbs

 May 7, 2008, 06:13 Re: Need some explaining please-urgent paper inclu #5 kbs Guest   Posts: n/a hey bohis your answer not understandable? how it mean the total number of elements in your view ? which section you mean (inlet-outlet-wall) and why you not like this mesh in the roll bottom?

 May 7, 2008, 06:30 Re: Need some explaining please-urgent paper inclu #6 bohis Guest   Posts: n/a I mean total number of grid cells in whole cylinder. I do not like the surface mesh in the bottom of cylinder, since I can see some highly skewed elements (rectangles) good luck

 May 7, 2008, 07:02 Re: Need some explaining please-urgent paper inclu #7 kbs Guest   Posts: n/a how you know it's a highly skewed elements? did you draw it?

 May 7, 2008, 07:10 Re: Need some explaining please-urgent paper inclu #8 bohis Guest   Posts: n/a I have seen it, you should see it also. The mesh in the bottom is like a rectangular mesh imposed to the circle, thus, there must be naturally highly skewed elements. Understand?

 May 7, 2008, 08:20 Re: Need some explaining please-urgent paper inclu #9 kbs Guest   Posts: n/a well not important if the mesh was bad the important thing is getting good results. Can you tell what the author mean with the mesh consist of 400 nodes per section with a section every 2â-¦? did u know how can this be done?

 May 7, 2008, 08:43 Re: Need some explaining please-urgent paper inclu #10 bohis Guest   Posts: n/a 400 nodes mean that there were 400 nodes in the bottom of the cylinder and then it was swept along the length of cylinder. It sounds quite simple. The formulation about 2° seems quite strange to me, however, I thing that it means the sector angle defined by the number of nodes. It means that author had 180 nodes on the perimeter of the cylinder crosssection

 May 8, 2008, 02:19 Re: Need some explaining please-urgent paper inclu #11 kbs Guest   Posts: n/a hey you mean the interval count equal to 180 for the full diameter hence the angle become 2 degree?

 May 8, 2008, 02:34 Re: Need some explaining please-urgent paper inclu #12 bohis Guest   Posts: n/a you are right, but I can be wrong, of course.

 May 8, 2008, 04:29 Re: Need some explaining please-urgent paper inclu #14 bohis Guest   Posts: n/a okay, so I am absolutely convinced about what I have written

 May 8, 2008, 04:50 Re: Need some explaining please-urgent paper inclu #15 k.baker Guest   Posts: n/a nobody said that what you wrote is wrong but be aware you may expose to do mistakes through your life.

 May 8, 2008, 04:56 Re: Need some explaining please-urgent paper inclu #16 bohis Guest   Posts: n/a thank you for your deep philosophical thought. I am well aware of that, since I am making mistakes very often
