Greetenigs to all.
Let me describe you my problem. I have to analize an airflow over a profile. I've got a .jou file where my coordinates are specified. I am a total beginner in using the FLUENT software. I'm looking for some hints on how to setup the problem. I've tried to open the file in fluent but the program displays me the following: vertex invalid command , for every coordinate that is set in the .jou file.
The next question is linked to setting up a 2D mesh for FLUENT. I've been looking through some threads in the forum and it seems to me that you can generate a mesh in ICEM CFD, if I'm wrong pleas let me know. In another post I've read that you can also design a 2D profile (editing the properties) in design modeler and then proceed to the mesher. My question is how can I import (if it is even possible) the coordinates from my you file to DM or ICEM CFD, basically how to setup the problem in the design an meshing area?

Thank you for your answers.
Greetings.

jou is a command file, not that only include geometry information. Extract the point information from the jou file, and import to ICEM CFD, you can build your model based on them.
In ICEM CFD, link the coordinates with lines to create a domain, and then create mesh on it either with block strategy or mesh strategy.

It seems to me that this is an journal file for Gambit, the now retired preprocessor of FLUENT before Ansys took over. As long as you don't have this software on your computer your .jou files won't be of any use.

cheers

Is there anyway that I could import those points to design modeler-setting the analysis from 3D to 2D, like it is described in the following tutorial, except the tutorial is flow past a flat plate:
