We are quite happy with meshing in FLOW3D. It is a simple way to mesh for experienced and non experienced engineers. CFDesign has an Automesh capacity which we do not use at all, we have to do it by hand. In the last version we have huge problems with memory and so we have neverhad with FLOW3D.

For me meshing is not the problem. We have experienced strange results in CFDesign not corresponding with reality. Doing the same problem with FLOW-3D we have outstanding aproximations to reality.

I hope this helps.

Fran are you saying the tetra mesh used in CFDesign has most issue than structural mesh with Flow-3D for complex geometry? Can you advice on your application?

FRAN is on a distinguished road
Hi again. I only say that for the same physical problem we obtain different results in CFDesign and in F3D. Believe me that CFDesign`s results are non realistic at all, even with the thetraedral cells.
