Hi,

I am fairly new to ICEM and CFD in general, I owuld like to mesh an inclined cylinder with periodic boundaries on the top and bottom of the cylinder (infinite cylinder), I tried setting the translation vector (the cylinder length vector from base to top) at the global mesh setup, but i get a mesh which is totally off!

here's the .prj file attached. (the cylinder is inclined at 75 degrees to the flow direction, length = 1.5, so axis vec = 1.5cos(75),0,1.5sin(75)

the image shows the mesh i generated but it's not periodic.

P.S : moderator/admin, could you please delete my post at the Mesh Generation & Pre-Processing


Thanks and Regards,
shashi
