Hello all,

I am trying to simulate a problem where I use ICEM CFD for meshing and CFX for solver. The geometry contains propeller blade section and other non rotational components of the engine.

1) I am meshing the whole assembly with unstructured grid
2) I have to set periodic boundary conditions for only the propeller domain
3) ICEM CFD defines the periodicity to the whole geometry by using Global Mesh parameters --> Define Periodicity option

Therefore I want to know whether it is possible to directly define periodicity in the CFX without defining anything beforehand in ICEM? Will CFX takes care of it?

Thank you
