BFC multi-blocking.....help!!!
 
I'm learning about BFC,,but I'm having problems with multi-blocking. We have Phoenics 2.2..When I use MPATCH and READCO and reload the q1,,the geometry looks good in the menu...but when I return to the main menu to apply boundaries...the geometry becomes distorted and scattered that its hard to make the boundaries...Please help........

It would be helpful if you would post the Q1 file you are using. How have you prepared the multi-block grid? Have you used a grid generation tool or have you done that in PIL? For up-to-date multi-block grid generation there is no way around external meshing tools.

Thanks....I was doing this tutorial about a T-duct,,,connecting 2 blocks by extending a dummy cell..and using MPATCH and READCO to combine them..So..I probably modified some of q1 not using any grid generation tool except satellite.

Here is the q1 file....
