Turbo grid Splitter meshing

does anyone have an experience with meshing radial splitter blade wheels using ATM Optimized topology?

I use this topology for full blade wheels and it works really well. When I tried to use it for splitters, it always falls on errors, that it cannot choose the topology automatically.

Thank you

ATM is working fine for splitter blade. Either you you have problems in the geometry files (profile.curve etc) or you are using Turbogrid V13

I checked the BGD output and there seemed to be no problem.
Yet using the ATm is not working. I am using workbech 14.

is it possible for you to send the .curve files on forum or through pm?

Trailing edge shape is round or square? if sharp then check the option of cut-off or square trailing edge option for the both blades (main and splitter)

Hi Far,

I think, I will not be able to share the files unfortunately.

I am using for both full bl and splitters ellipse 2:1.

Also trailing edge is rounded.
