 January 8, 2009, 08:40 Meshing problems using Gambit #1 Vianney Guest   Posts: n/a Hello, I try to mesh a model (3D). The model is an airfoil contained in a flow volume. I meshed the surfaces o the airfoil without any problems, now I try to mesh the volume (brick) containing the airfoil in order to analyse the results in fluent. I use the option "Mesh Volume", then I select the entire volume formed by the substraction of the brick volume and the airfoil volume. It seems that the meshing function ignore the airfoil inside the brick, there isn't any link between the 3D meshing f the volume and the 2D meshing of the airfoil. This is a print screen of the problem: http://img113.imageshack.us/my.php?i...3642522rl5.jpg Regards, Vianney

Good Luck Khairy

Create a volume for the airfoil, then use Boolean subtract, to 'imprint' the airfoil volume onto the main volume. The surface mesh on the airfoil will then be detected by the main volume. Hope that helps.

The geometry I am working with is the wind airfoil. I have flow inlet and outlet, and inlet/outlet is planar and roughly rectangular. The entire geometry is a sort of rectangular shaped outer airfoil. I can create but when I use the "View 2D Boundary Layer" tool in Gambit, my boundary layers will not even appear in the selection list and cannot be added by shift-left-clicking on them. Does anyone know why they cannot be added to the list? http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/9779/boundarlayer.jpg __________________ sivaramakrihnaiah Last edited by sivarama1; May 30, 2009 at 03:50.
