ATM optimized for splittered geometry
hi all
who knows how to generate structured mesh for 2 blades (main blade and splitter) using ATM optimized method?

Far March 24, 2012 07:39

You are talking about Turbogrid?

atm optimized
yes friend, want to know how to generate atm optimized mesh for splittered geometry by turbogrid.
it makes a high quality mesh using atm optimized method,but i think it is limited to single blade

Quoting from ANSYS TG 13 training material.

Multi-blade configurations, e.g. splitters, not supported by ATM in R13

Quoting from TG 14.0 User guide, Page 95, Using Splitter Blades with ATM
Quote: Using Splitter Blades with ATM
The ATM method now supports splitter blades which meet the following criteria:
The main and splitter blades have rounded leading edges and cut-off trailing edges.
The leading edge for the main blade is positioned ahead (meridionally) of the splitter leading edge.
The trailing edges for both blades are located at the same meridional position.
User guide can be found here

excuse me friend,yourself could do that?have any experience?

Far March 24, 2012 23:14

Yes. I did no. of projects using turbogrid. Recently used ATM for water turbine as well.

your geometry was splittered?

Far March 24, 2012 23:25

No. Never used ATM for Splitter blades

thank you friend
