Default 2D periodic from ICEM to FLUENT
Posts: n/a
Hey all,

I have a problem when loading a ICEM mesh into Fluent, It is a 2D tranlational periodic grid.

I get the following error:



Warning: Inappropriate zone type (periodic) for one-sided face zone 15. Changing to wall. Warning: Inappropriate zone type (periodic) for one-sided face zone 16. Changing to wall.

Error: FLUENT received fatal signal (ACCESS_VIOLATION)

1. Note exact events leading to error.

2. Save case/data under new name.

3. Exit program and restart to continue.

4. Report error to your distributor.

Error Object: ()

I can't seem to get it right...

Any ideas on what i might be doing wrong? I set the periodicity in ICEM and the periodicity check tells me there are no problems.

Hopefully someone can shed some light on this.

I actually managed to correct that error, by redefining the periodic zones in fluent with the grid/modify-zones/make-periodic command. Somehow the ICEM export seems to mess up the periodic definition, or I might be doing something wrong there.
