Re: gambit icem conversion
 
Hi,

It`s possible with ICEM CFD v4.0.X to convert a Fluent MSH file into an ICEM domain file but this is an unstructured format and therefore doesn`t know about each block. Is it important to have an ICEM CFD multiblock model ?

May I also ask the reason for doing this ? Do you want this to write the mesh out for another solver ? If so then the above unstructured method may work.

To do this you will need the latest build of ICEM CFD, but if you have this then it may be alot quicker to build your meshes in TETRA or HEXA anyway, then they can be written out to the 100+ solvers supported.

Regards

David

reason of gambit icem conversion
 
Hi,

thanks for suggestion, but I need conversion directly from gambit to icem standard output. I make calculation by using the same grid in fluent and other cod (SPARC from Karlsruhe Uni). The problem is that I don't have Icem Cfd. Before Gambit I used Geomesh, but now in Fluent package Geomesh is absent.

Regards

Tomasz
