 January 4, 2004, 04:56 2D cylindrical problem in axial & radial direction #1 Manoj Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links I have a 2D cylindrical geometry and I want to solve it in the axial and radial direction. In the gambit I can create the 2D geometry and export the mesh only in x-y plane & not in x-z plane. x-y direction means r-theta directions. but i want to solve it in r-z direction. anybody can please help me.

Then, when you import the mesh into FLUENT, make sure that you set the problem as 2D-axisymmetric (Define/Solver). In this way, the x-direction is your axial, the y-direction your radial coordinates.
