how to expand block splitting
2 Attachment(s)
hello, everyone.

as following picture shows is the original block topology. But I want to expand the split through the vertex as the dash line displays.

I don't know if ICEM CFD has a function to realize the split. Any suggestion is welcome. I'm very appreciated for your help.

Blocking -> Split Block -> Extend Split (near O-grid)

thanks for your reply. I have tried the extend split function, but it did not work. can you give me any detail information?

Extend Split -> All -> Apply

How did you create the blocks? Extend Split only works if the split was already implied. However, if you created your blocks bottom up there may actually be a gap between the vertex and the block below.

If you generate a mesh, is the number of elements between the top two edges and the bottom edge tied together?

If not, there is a merge option to merge a vertex to an edge... Then extend the split.
