Default I-DEAS 2 fluent
Posts: n/a
Can anybody comment on their experiences using SDRC's I-DEAS package to generate meshes for use within Fluent? Does I-DEAS and Gambit have any functional compatability? TIA

I have not tried this myself but it should work. Create the mesh in I-DEAS. Export as 'I-DEAS simulation universal file' (*.unv). Be sure to select only the mesh and not the part. Import it in Fluent as an universal file.

We use I-DEAS to generate tetra-surface-meshes and T-Grid to generate the volume-mesh. It's also possible to generate a volume-mesh in I-DEAS and export it directly to Fluent. U need to define Groups in I-DEAS (inlet, walls, outlet) to set the bounadry conditions in Fluent. So generate an I-DEAS mesh, export it as universal file but select only the elements an nodes and the groups. This works.

Ciao Mic
