Meshing in ansys
1 Attachment(s)
Hi Experts :)

Just have a little question (hope it'll be a short one) regarding Meshing with Ansys. I want to mesh these two parts independently and solve my system in FLUENT. The smaller cylinder has to be meshed using Tetrahedrons whereas larger one has to be meshed using Hexa elements.

When I do this, the software crosses my geometry ticks (shown in red rectangle). I just want to know what this means?

Secondly I want know if Ansys will connect the mesh elements in the connection plane between two bodies and the data will be transferred through the plane?

Tnx alot for your help in advance

1st Question : It means two body were already meshed but the last one. In this situation, check your geometry or right click on it and choose general mesh.

Hope this help :)

Thanks alot for your reply. So it does not mean if anything wrong with my mesh or the methods are not compatible? Secondly, The purpose of the third body was to be used as Body of Influence. Bust when I try to mesh, I can not see its effect afterwards? What is wrong in my procedure?
