hi everyone
For a simple pipe flow,which size is 0.5X4,I used gambit and ICEM to produce .msh files.After converting the .msh files with command fluentMeshToFoam or fluent3DMeshToFoam,I ran the command icoFoam.What interested me is the big differences between the two case.And I found that the result with the mesh produced by gambit was correct,the other was wrong.
So who can tell me what is wrong with it?
