Errors during exporting from Gambit to Fluent
 
Hello everyone,

I have recently began learning Fluent, so I read a couple od tutorials.

One is an example of flow through pipe (2d mesh), and I have experienced problems with exporting the mesh to Fluent.

I think that the best is to just post the files so that someone could have a look at them.

Theese are the files:
http://www.projektnorwegia.klient.st...t/flu_tut1.dbs
http://www.projektnorwegia.klient.st...t/flu_tut1.jou
http://www.projektnorwegia.klient.st...t/flu_tut1.trn
packed in rar:
http://www.projektnorwegia.klient.st...t/flu_tut1.rar

I have followed the tutorial, and the steps seem logical to me, therefore I can't think of what could be wrong. I have meshed the boundaries and then the faces.

I would be very grateful for any help since I need this for my studies ;)

This is the error message:
Code:

Now that's embarrasing. :/ It worked :) So obvious! Thanks!

Rep for you :)

Boundary entity does not contain valid entity
 
Hey!! I am working on s 3 bladed vertical axis tidal turbine. I have used different mesh for blades, rotor and stator and then combined them for the mesh. Recently I experienced similar issue, in which a warning was sent " boundary entity "interface" does not contain any valid entity". This was for all the interfaces.

After this warning it said " mesh has been successfully exported". Is it correct or I still have to make some changes. Any help will be highly appreciated.
