Default domainlib.a -- pid not matching domain number ?

Hi all,

I have a problem with 'domainlib.a', and need help from someone who knows a bit about ICEM internals: I used this lib to write a converter for unstructured ICEM grids. In a previous unstructured grid (probably Ansys v10. ICEM), the domains are indexed and named as follows (using domainlib routine DFDNAME):

0. ORFN 1. PPS

2. PSS ...

... 22. prescribed nodes 23. curve nodes 24. surface nodes 25. volume nodes 26. periodic_nodes_0 27. periodic_nodes_1

Up to #21, these are domains as shown by ICEM user interface, and from #22 on appear some domains I did not know about, i.e. not created by me, probably for internal usage by ICEM.

Now I created another unstructured grid, with Ansys v11 ICEM, these internal domains appear upfront, with slightly different names:

0. periodic_nodes_0 1. periodic_nodes_1

2. prescribed nodes 3. curve nodes

4. surface nodes 5. volume nodes


8. OUTLET ...

However, the PID (Property ID) of the elements (as retrieved by domainlib routine DFRDEL), start counting from somewhere in the middle (i.e. with an offset of -4 or so).

No the question is: Is there some domainlib routine that helps mapping, is there a new convention I do not know about, or is ICEM now all of a sudden incompatible with domainlib.a ?

Thanks Christian Fuchs

Apparently the error occured because I used 'hex.uns', which is different from the final '<project>.uns. I have no problems with the latter one.
