Default Import plot3d grid file
CFX new user
Posts: n/a

I have a number of grid belonging to different problems and I would like to test the those problems in CFX5.

I have imported the grid, but how does I place boundary conditions on this grid.

Do I have to make surfaces where the inlet and outlet boundaries are ?

Or how to proceed. The manuals does not help much.


New user.

Boundary conditions and source specifications can be placed on predefined 2D regions and 3D regions respectively.

If you are using volume mesh import mode to import a mesh from another source, you need to make sure that the appropriate regions have been defined in your source file before importing into CFX-5.

A word of warning here also - support for the PLOT3D format has been dropped for CFX-5.5 (release imminent). My recommendation would be to either convert your files to a more universally supported format if you can, or create Definition Files containing your PLOT3D mesh in CFX-5.4.1. These files can then be imported into CFX-5.5 in the same way as other mesh source files.
