 November 19, 2002, 23:43 Coordinate System #1 Pravesh kumar Guest   Posts: n/a hi I needed your immediate help.I am having my geometry in Gambit in X-Y plane.I want to know when i am having my Geometry in fourth coordinate whether i should put gravitational acceleration (g) 9.81 or -9.81. Your immediate help is required. With my warm personel Regards pravesh

 November 20, 2002, 03:28 Re: Coordinate System #2 gavin Guest   Posts: n/a If I understand your question correctly, you should have 'g' working opposite to the postive y direction, therefore it will be -9.81 m/s^2

 November 20, 2002, 11:29 Re: Coordinate System #3 Pravesh kumar Guest   Posts: n/a hi But I having my geometry in fourth coordinate i.e +X,-Y As I have already taken -Y dirn so i am not sure whether to put one more -ve for the downward dirn of gravitational acceleration(g). Thanks for replying.

 November 20, 2002, 12:38 Re: Coordinate System #4 Erwin Guest   Posts: n/a Just check in Fluent in which direction 'the apple should fall'; in the positive y direction or the negative one. If it is the negative y direction, gravity is -9.81 otherwise +9.81.

Your help is needed. Thanks

 November 21, 2002, 04:18 Re: Coordinate System #6 Erwin Guest   Posts: n/a Your gravity is in -Y direction, so fill in -9.81. It doesn't matter in which quadrant you make your grid, +Y still goes up, -Y still goes down. To see for yourself: read the grid into Fluent. Display the grid. Under Display/Options menu, turn on the 'Display Axis' option. Look at your grid. Decide in which direction gravity acts.
