 April 25, 2008, 13:59 How to change domain extents in fluent #1 kbs Guest   Posts: n/a I am drawing pipe as 3D cylinder in gambit and export the mesh into fluent. When I check the grid fluent show the following dimensions: Domain Extents: x-coordinate: min (m) = -3.061516e-017, max (m) = 2.500000e+001 y-coordinate: min (m) = -4.925000e-002, max (m) = 4.925000e-002 z-coordinate: min (m) = -2.789934e-017, max (m) = 4.925000e-002 where x is the dimension towards the cylinder length and the (y & z) coordinates towards the radial direction. The last to coordinates appeared in fluent as (-R & +R) I want these coordinates start from 0 to full diameter of cylinder not as shown above how can I do this please help ? Thanks a lot KBS

I set the cylinder as symmetric along the y-axis and used mirror option to complete the cylinder along the z-direction but the dimension of it not change what can I do then? Thanks a lot

Please check the dimensions. If you are using symmetry, your domain will be what you have drawn in Gambit. The extra half you will see with the mirror option at the postprocessing stage is not part of the domain considered in the scale option. If the flow is mainly along the length of the cylinder, consider modeling 1/4th of the cylinder with two symmetry faces. Regards AAA
