How to open mesh file in Gambit /pls help
 
Can anyone tell me how can I view a mesh file (*.msh) into Gambit ? I have available mesh file from a tutorial I need to open it with Gambit to see how the author draw the mesh but I don not know how?

hi you can not open a (mesh file ) in Gambit , the extensions that Gambit can view is:

1-(filename.dbs) to view the figure in gambit and specify intail boundry condittions

2-(filename.jou) to view the journal of the gambit

while (filename.msh) can open by fluent and yoy can display the figure and change intial boundry condittions you make in gambit.

I think, that U can import *.msh file into gambit by clicking on: file -> import -> mesh -> choose Fluent 5/6 -> Browse -> load Your file *.msh milano

That's hard to say, I don't know the software U used for the *.mesh cration. I used Gambit to crate the mesh file and maybe that's reason that it worked in my case. Check the heading of the file, if there is not any bug. Sorry. Or if U can load the file in Fluent, save it again in fluent (use another name) and try to repeat the first idea (gambit -> file -> ....) Milano

I meant move the files to a directory without spacing and open it from there. Like C:\CFD\mymesh.msh.

Maybe it will work. Maybe not. -Dr. Flow Squad http://tinyurl.com/2gkjh8
