Error: unbound variable

When i open my mesh file, from gambit, in fluent for the first time i get the following error message

Error: access: unbound variable Error Object: phase-domain?

What does this mean and will it affect the results? The grid check is fine.

Re: Error: unbound variable

was your problem finally solved?

you said earlier:

It has to do with how you name your boundaries. For example they should be named inlet_1 or inlet-1 and not inlet 1. A character space causes the problem.

did it work or not?

let us know

Re: Error: unbound variable
Hi David,

Yes it did.

I had an inlet named "inlet 1", and when i originally opened the file in fluent i got the error message.

I then went back into gambit and changed the name to "inlet_1" and the error message dissappeared.

A simple error which probably has no effect on the simulation
