face handedness / left-handedleft-handed
 
I imported a mesh from ICEM into Fluent 5.5. After checking the grid I recieved the following message: ... Checking face cells. Checking face handedness.

Zone 22: 82878 right-handed, 3 left-handed

Zone 24: 7219 right-handed, 7 left-handed Checking element type consistency. ...

Does anybody know how I can change left-handed to right-handed ? What is left-handed ? (change tolerance settings ?)

Have you tried the "repair-face-handedness" command in the text menu (I think it is is under grid/modify-zones). This often helps, not always though. I've used it succesfully a few times when importing problemtic grids made in ICEM.
