 December 21, 2010, 03:33 mesh grading problem with multiple blocks #1 New Member   Aljaz Osterman Join Date: Dec 2010 Posts: 8 Rep Power: 6 Hi! When I'm trying to mesh a part of cylinder, made out of 3 blocks, I've found that when I try to have some grading in direction of symmetry axis, there's error message like: --> FOAM FATAL ERROR: face 451 area does not match neighbour 1051 by 11.4833% -- possible face ordering problem. ... etc. With simple grading (1) everything is ok (blockMesh and checkMesh). Interestingly though the mesh is generated and can be graded in all directions without a problem if central block is omitted (geometry of only 2 blocks - it's like a cylinder with a hole inside). The same holds true also if only the central block is meshed. Any suggestions how can I make graded mesh on all 3 blocks? Another question: what's the required precision when defining geometry (e.g. when using trigonometric functions) With best regards! P.S.: my blockMeshDict is pasted below, now it's not working, but if you replace '5' with '1' in simpleGrading specifications, it works.
