Hi everyone,
I have a problem with ICEM.
I created a combustor geometry with a vaporiser tube (as surfaces) positioned inside. It looked fine after I computed an unstructured mesh but when I imported it into FLUENT, the vaporiser disappeared. FLUENT somehow assumed everything inside the combustor was fluid and deleted by vaporiser part.

I tried defining the tube as another body, creating the surface mesh on the tube surface and defining the tube surface as wall in ICEM but this didn't work.

I will really appreciate it if anyone can tell me what went wrong, please. Thank you!
Jenny

You could upload your geometry model, then figture out where the problem is.
