Default Draw and export a face (inlet) in GAMBIT
Posts: n/a
Hi, everyone!

I have drawn a volume and set a part of one face of this volume (not whole face) as inlet. Then I have meshed inlet and rest part as well as the whole volume.

But when I have read mesh file in fluent, the inlet zone was not transported. The error message is as below:

"Skipping zone inlet (not referenced by grid)"

Have I done something wrong??

And I have got another error.

"Warning: Number of nodes read (14475) does not match number referenced (14359). Resetting counter to match the number referenced."

What should I do to reset counter? I have not seen such error at all. --;

Help me, please!

How do you creat the face of inlet? Maybe you need to split the face which the inlet lies on with the face of inlet, then mesh them and the volume.

There seems to be no volume mesh connected to your inlet.

Maybe there are two faces lying one upon the other in Gambit and only one is connected to the next volume.??

Try to read the mesh into tgrid and analyse it. Tgrid will not skip any mesh parts, hence you will be able to find the fault very fast.

In a simple model I have split the face of the volume with the small face which I want to set inlet zone and it worked!

Thanks a lot both of you for the advices.
