 October 17, 2006, 01:21 problems with VERY simple mesh #1 Ralf Schmidt Guest   Posts: n/a Hi! I have a very simple mesh in gambit (2D, about 5000 tri cells, only 10 cells with an equiSize Skew higer than 0.22). Now, exporting to and importing in Fluent is no problem. Performing a grid check is ok as well. Now, I turned the solver to axissymmetric and activate k-epsilon modell. After that, a new grid chek failed: WARNING: non-positive volumes exist. Waht happend??? ANY idea?? Ralf

 October 17, 2006, 01:37 Re: problems with VERY simple mesh #4 Ralf Schmidt Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, thx for answer... that might be the problem, but: First, I had the axis BC parallel to the y-axis, now it is coincident to the x-axis. But the problem still appears when i turn on the axis-symmetric solver. Ralf

 October 17, 2006, 02:33 Re: problems with VERY simple mesh #6 mAx Guest   Posts: n/a check if the revolution axis lie exactly on the x-axis. a small gap about 1e-3 under the x-axis will crash the grid check

 October 17, 2006, 05:54 problem solved! #7 Ralf Schmidt Guest   Posts: n/a Hi! in the domain extents it is visible: the y domain starts from -1.2 e-14 - so there are some nodes below the x-axis!! I solved the problem - editing the msh file: exchanging all y values below 0 to 0. Another way: translating the whole mesh in y-direction. It works fine now... but why does fluent (or gambit) produces that problem??? Ralf
