CFX-5.5: Meshing subdomain with inflation
Simple geometry: large cylindrical flow volume with volumetric heat source in the first half, that's why I need a subdomain. This subdomain fills the whole volume in the first part of the fluid-domain and the fluid after exiting the subdomain flows on through the rest of the cylinder. I need inflated boundary on all the inner walls of this geometry but Build doesn't make me a def file. (for example if I wan't to use the "Type: Bound Conditions" with "Select Current Walls" option) Most common error message: surface volume is self intersecting

Looking forward to your help

Re: CFX-5.5: Meshing subdomain with inflation

Have you tried selecting the surfaces, rather than using the boundary condition option? Give it a try with only a few surfaces first. Sometimes there may be a single surface that is giving you grief, when excluded you can at least get inflation on the rest.

Also, have you downloaded the recent patches from ftp site?

Re: CFX-5.5: Meshing subdomain with inflation
Thanks but for both question my answer is yes... My experience is that the problem is with the subdomain stuff. If I leave some space (very litte is enough) between the end of the subdomain and the inflated part of the rest (so it looks like [inflated subdomain]..[the rest with inflation]) it's ok but it is very ugly...
