Default Zero Area Cells
Posts: n/a
Hi everybody!

I have a weird problem. I generated a model in Gambit, and when Fluent reads it, it reports there are cells that have zero area, and so the grid check fails, and i can't work on the model. I checked it, and although some of the cells are pretty small (deliberately!), it can't be said that they have zero area... Does anybody know what to do in this case? Is there any scaling needed to be done in Fluent, in order to correct it and make it read it properly?

Thank you in advance!

OK. I found the error for the problem... I am using an axi-symmetric model, and by mistake i didn't define well a small zone in the wall as an axis, which caused the problems when exporting it to Fluent.

Thanks anyway...
