Hi all,

I am using icem cfd to create a mesh for a 2d airfoil.I use my own solver and use the mesh from ICEM. My code is parallel so i am trying to generate 2 fluent.msh files and use them as 2 different blocks for my code.I have create a 2d mesh and then i split the topo in two.

My problem is that I can't define a block edge as a boundary to apply interblock boundary conditions.Is there a way to do that?.

I have pictures attached so you can see what i mean above.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much

Divide Blocks into different Parts (as two Fluid Cell zones).

Yes, as soon as you have two different volumes, ICEM CFD will automatically want to create a boundary... But you will still need to associate that medial edge with a curve if you need the line elements for your boco
