Multi Block Meshing in Gambit
1 Attachment(s)

I am new to CFD and I have a question for you. Basically I am trying to simulate flow over cylinder in a cylindrical domain. The domain has to be of 144 nodes stretched along radial direction and 121 equispaced nodes around circumferential direction and should be of two blocks with overlapping regions.

Please guide me how to proceed. Thank you:):):)

what is the need of this overlaping region?

The boundary points of each block get their information from the interior points of the neighboring block. A point-matched overlapping boundary is a very good way to have blocks interact, but it can be hard to achieve throughout complex domains.
