 July 2, 2008, 09:44 gambit error #1 costy Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links I'm trying to generate a 3D grid around a hydrofoil. It generate all surface mesh but when I try to generate the mesh on the volume it says that a logical cube cannot be found. What is the that logical cube and how can I fix that error?????

 July 3, 2008, 20:39 Re: gambit error #2 Dan Guest   Posts: n/a Hi there, You are trying to mesh with Hex elements. For using hex elements in gambit you need to have a cube. Each surface should exactly map with the surface on the opposite side. Use tet elements. this should fix your problem. trying to mesh using Hex elements in gambit is complete waste of time unless the geometry is simple. Cheers Dan

Imagine a small circular face that sits inside a large circular face and subtract one from the other to be left with an annular face. This is a non logical cube and gambit cannot mesh it as it is a face made up of 2 edges that don't meet. Splitting the face across into 2 faces of 4 edges each means they are then logical cubes and each can be map meshed.

 July 7, 2008, 03:19 Re: gambit error #7 costy Guest   Posts: n/a I did that. I split the domain in 4 volumes-1 upstream, 1 left , 1 right of the strut and 1 in downstream). The problem is I have 4 faces (2-left and 2-right)inside the domain. When I set the boundary condition I do not consider these 4 faces, but the fluent code considere them some kind of wall, because I obtain wrong results. If I eliminate these faces by uniting the volumes , gambit give me that error with logical cube.
