Hi all,

i have a simple question.

i created a cylinder in ansys modeling. then i sliced it in 4 parts.

i meshed all parts.(conformal mesh)

i used named selection for inlet and outlet(FIG.1).

when i import mesh to fluent, there are 8 walls!!(FIG.2.)

my question is, how the wall is created??? and please tell me, why the walls can not be displayed in fluent(FIG.2.)?
what should i do? i don not want to have walls????
and how can i convert the walls to interior(FIG.3.)?

I'm not sure about that, you may want to ask your question at in the fluent section. Apparently they have some experts that answer questions.

After slicing the parts in DM, select all the parts >right click > form new part, then it will be meshed as a single part in AM and when importing it in Fluent you will not have the 4 interior walls.
