For the periodic bc. you have to link the edges (in 3d the faces) before you mesh them. The mesh has to be exactly the same on both sides if you want to use periodic bc

Try setting the periodic boundaries as two separate bc's, such as two symmetry bc's, in Gambit and then forming the periodic bc in fluent using the text interface as below.


Before forming the periodic bc check that the fluid zone's origin and axis are defined correctly under the boundary conditions panel.

If this does not work, I'll need more info on the error message you're receiving from fluent.

Hope this helps,
