What do it mean? thank you all for the attention, i'm not doing without us!!

I don't understand what you are trying to explain

Is your operation successfull? if yes, forget the warning
If not, check if the surface splits all the volume

Else you don't have to take care of your "interfaces" (which are not interface --> cf sliding mesh) Indeed once you export your mesh, gambit takes all the surfaces which are not defined as specific BC, and defines them as wall Basically if you mesh a cylinder (3 surfaces: top + bottom + lateral), you define the top and bottom as inlet/outlet, you export the mesh , and you get 4 BC: inlet/outlet and the rest (lateral) as wall. Did I reply your query? __________________ In memory of my friend Hervé: CFD engineer & freerider

i don't understand this:
• cf sliding mesh
suppose that are important model the solid, the surface lateral is one or two?

Lets take a cylinder, in the middle you have a marble. So the flow will flows in the cylinder, but not in the marble (just around) So you need to substract the marble from the cylinder (boolean operation). You get ONE volume, but with a hole in the middle (marble substracted). So the hole represents the solid, but it is not mesh/modelised... At the "interface" between the flow and the marble there is only one surface representing the outer surface from the marble (will be set as wall in the BC panel). hope it helps (i can also german and french if it helps) __________________ In memory of my friend Hervé: CFD engineer & freerider
