Orthogonality of cell check
I am a new user of ANSA and using 13.2.4 version.After importing mesh from ANSA to fluent, I check skewness and orthogonality in fluent as a preliminary criteria for the CFD analysis.

Is it possible to check the orthogonality of cell in ANSA ??

Hi there,

In ANSA v13.2.4 you can check for Fluent aspect, skewness, squish, angle etc
but Fluent Orthogonality check has only been added in ANSA in v14.x series

I suggest you download the latest version v14.2.1

Best regards,

hi nkjsimulating..
i want to know how to export the Ansa file as .mesh file....
I did the CFD tetra mesh for pipe bending and i export as .msh file without setting the BC in Ansa. Then i imported it in fluent i got the error as INVALID MESH..
