Default Structured Mesh for Hollow Cylinder
Posts: n/a
Hi everyone,

this is my situation:

I'm trying to generate a structured mesh in a hollow cylinder (the external result of the substraction of 2 coaxial cylinders) to use with TASCflow.

How wise is it to try and do that using GAMBIT (at least I know I have it but I'm not an exerienced user and I failed to see how to adjust the mesh ratio in the radial direction)?

I don't have the licence for CFX-TASCFLOW-GRD. Could that solve my problem?

I have TURBOgrid. Could that help?

Any other solution to create the structured mesh I want by hand and have it to be compatible with TASCflow?

Thanks a lot,

it seems that some people read my post! Maybe my question wasn't clear enought. So here is an update and some answers.

Yes it is possible to mesh my hollow cylinder using GAMBIT and any ratio I want (I just needed the trick of splitting the faces using virtual edges). So that's fine.

Now I have a structured mesh(yeah!!!) that I can export to all what FLUENT can export (PATRAN, ANSYS etc).

Now... can TASCFLOW read any of those formats or/and convert my mesh into a grd file?

I've found what looks like import subroutines (by browsing my /CFX directory) for PATRAN and ANSYS but when I use them nothing is created.

Any idea about how to use my GAMBIT structured mesh for TASCFLOW?

Thanks a lot,
