Error in prism mesh
I have generated a good quality surface mesh around an aircraft, without errors or warnings. I was trying to create the prism mesh for the BL and I get the same error every time: "Assertion failed: 0, file prism.C, line 5000 This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. (...) Error: prism terminated prematurely"

Does anyone know why this happens?

Thanks in advance.

Regards, Joao

Re: Error in prism mesh

I assume you are using ICEM? Unfortunately ICEM is not the world's most stable software. Thankfully it has got a LOT better in recent releases, but it is still not bullet-proof.

Try doing the same thing a different way, otherwise contact support and report it, it probably is a bug.

Sometimes a simple thing as smoothing the surfaces helps. - Dr. Flow Squad
