About Meshing??
Hi All,

I am looking for a nested mesh capability, but more so something which would update itself according to the position of a GMO. I have a 3D complex geometry and at the moment I cannot afford the computational time to have a regular cell everywhere around the body.
So is there a some sort of adaptive meshing available within Flow-3D or maybe a control using a fortran function?

There is nothing immediately available in the code to let you do a moving or adaptive mesh block. I'm pretty sure that there isn't a way to do it with the supplied source, either. You could contact Flow Science to do it for you, but it probably wouldn't be free.

Is their curved mesh possible or not?my structure is in curve shaped yhen now how i do meshing for accurate results?

Curved meshes are unnecessary in FLOW-3D because the geometry is embedded in the mesh rather than using a body-fitted grid.
