Hello All!

I wanted to determine the size of cells when using grading. In the example that I am running, the length of the block is 1.2 m, with 20 cells in the direction where grading is applied and 0.05 is the ratio (between the first cell and the last cell). How can i know the length of each cell in the graded direction. I know that gradind calculator has been presented here, but extracting it is giving errors.

Thanks for your help.

Regards,
Nikunj.

Greetings Nikunj,

I'm sorry to say I can't help you with this (no time to test), but I know that the plug-in SwiftBlock for Blender might help you: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/SwiftBlock
I say this because of this post: SwiftSnap and SwiftBlock, GUIs for OpenFOAM's meshers - post #48

Best regards,
Bruno
