non positive volume
Dear all,
I have two files here.One of them(before wall) is before defining the skin of inner pipe as wall and the other is after that(Faces are associated to surface for this purpose) and the only difference between this two files is this association. the first one will export to fluent successfully while the second one will export to fluent with warning of non-positive volume.
Please help me. It 's made me confused.:confused:

I circled in blue the edges responsible for that, don't worry about it too much, minor problem.... come back to us if you can't fix it

Thank you . :) .
Fluid flows in both cylinder.(Inside of the cylinder that called wall will be as interior and its skin will be only as wall)
