Can GridGen generate block with non-matching cell faces ?
 
Hi all,

I am trying to generate a 2D structured mesh with non-matching faces using GridGen. Howver, I have not figured out how to do it yet... Does anyone know whether such mesh can be generated in GridGen and how ?

Thank you.

Gillian

Gillian,

Yes, you can make non-matching faces in a 2D mesh (structured and unstructured) - and 3D for that matter. You simply need two connectors at the same location with a different #of points and/or distribution. Just remember, Gridgen will automatically merge connectors with the same # of points and distribution, so before you draw the second be sure to change the default dimension, spacing and/or distribution.

I've attached an image demonstrating it for you.

Good luck, Chris

Go to pointwise.com contact them and say you are a student and maybe they can work something out with you.

they say that they can't do anything for students..they need professors to do the stuff...

Hi Priya,

We do require that a professor request the no-cost evaluation licenses for academic sites. That's so we don't get multiple requests for basically the same site. So just ask your professor to complete the form at www.pointwise.com/free and we'll setup their evaluation license. And hopefully shortly after, your professor will want to get a permanent license and perhaps join our teaching partnership program.

Best Regards
