Mesh problem?
Hello, I am new to gambit (and fluent), and trying to modify previously created model.

Here's what I have done so far. I have saved the previous gambit file under a new name, and have modified a few features of it to satisfy the need, and am trying to mesh it pretty much the same way that it was done before.

Is there a way to duplicate the same type of mesh? I mean, is there a way for finding out what type of scheme the previous person used to create that previous mesh? and duplicate it?

Thank you.

Re: Mesh problem?
If you open their Gambit session ".dbs" you might find the information there. If you just have the output file (".msh") you cannot.

If it is a uniform mesh (i.e. no size functions or mesh inflations) you could try meshing the geometry with different element sizes until you have a volume mesh with a similar (or the same) number of volume elements.

read through the saved journal file (*.jou). This contains a list of commands issued and can be re-run.
