Hi
I want to give Periodic boundary condition on blades but it is giving error as below...
/grid> modify-zones

/grid/modify-zones> make-periodic
Periodic zone [()] periodic_1
Shadow zone [()] periodic_2
Rotational periodic? (if no, translational) [yes]
Create periodic zones? [yes]

zone 12: matched 0 out of 676 faces.
zone 13: matched 0 out of 676 faces.

Error: Failed to make zones periodic.
Error Object: #f

/grid/modify-zones>
What is the reason and how it can be corrected...

Thanks in advance

Hello
For periodic boundary conditions give the boundary conditions in gambit itself and then when you will export to fluent it be a periodic boundary condition

second define it with any name and boundary types in gambit and then in fluent go to the boundary condition and change the boundary type to periodic

thanks
hope that will help you

Many thanks for replay BUT the problem is:
I'm using Ansys Workbench, so I'm used Ansys Mesher Not Gambit in my meshing my geometry
Do you know who to solve this with Ansys?
thanks again

yup i know
give any boundary condition name there is ansys mesher
and then go to fluent in bounday condition change it to symmetry

that's it

You mean, I change the b.c to symmetry
THEN make it periodic by write the following command in fluent window:mesh -> modify-zones -> make-periodic

no
go to boundary conditions
there change the boundary condition of those ares to symmetry.

Sorry , i can't understand
I have 1/3 cylinder, the sided faces should be periodic.
Is Symmetry equivalent to Periodic type!!!

No symmetry is not equivalent to periodic. In figure you said the wall should be interior, rather it should be interface: one for internal fluid and one for external fluid.

Dear/Far
No it was an an old problem, i solved it
sorry
Now, i have to define the "periodic type zone" to the two faces as appear in this pic

I'm made Match Face control in Ansys Mesher , Then i opened the fluent
and write the following (mesh -> modify-zones -> make-periodic)
After that fluent appear the first massage in this discussion !!

you can try this solution and accuracy is as good as pure periodic planes. you can write them as interface and then go to interface panel and then define them as interface with periodic condition.

I shall look into this issue, as I used to get this message in starting of my career.

if you find solution, tell me pls
thanks again

I used it many times and it is as good as periodic boundary. Send files through file sharing
