 February 24, 2011, 07:12 #102 Member   no183 Join Date: Sep 2010 Posts: 81 Rep Power: 9 i manage to mesh the face, it is success. But it is different for the volume, i get this error

And you gave an element size which is very small. So split your volume and use size fonction for controling your mesh size __________________ In memory of my friend Hervé: CFD engineer & freerider

 February 25, 2011, 02:25 #105 Super Moderator     Maxime Perelli Join Date: Mar 2009 Location: Switzerland Posts: 3,250 Rep Power: 34 yes you only have one volume, that's why I adviced you to split it into several small volumes. >>>Volume/Split __________________ In memory of my friend Hervé: CFD engineer & freerider

 February 25, 2011, 06:07 #106 Member   no183 Join Date: Sep 2010 Posts: 81 Rep Power: 9 so now what the step i have to do? 1) i will spilt the volume. (By the way, how to spilt it? just simply spilt it or spilt it as small and as simple as possible?) 2)mesh those spilted volume 1 by 1. 3)merged them back. is this the way?

 February 25, 2011, 06:14 #107 Super Moderator     Maxime Perelli Join Date: Mar 2009 Location: Switzerland Posts: 3,250 Rep Power: 34 1- split your volume where you think you need to refine your mesh, and where you think you can apply an hexa mesh (simple geometries like cube, cylinder etc...) 2- yes 3- no, don't merge back your volumes (gambit will glue them together) __________________ In memory of my friend Hervé: CFD engineer & freerider

 February 25, 2011, 09:12 #108 Member   no183 Join Date: Sep 2010 Posts: 81 Rep Power: 9 meaning i dont have to do step 3? gambit automatically joint aka "glue" them back?

 February 25, 2011, 09:52 #110 Member   no183 Join Date: Sep 2010 Posts: 81 Rep Power: 9 and the size function is necessary>?

 February 25, 2011, 09:54 #111 Member   no183 Join Date: Sep 2010 Posts: 81 Rep Power: 9 and another question, after i spilt the volume, let say not on the exactly on the boundary, eg like the PSU, in my case it is not purely cube, so i spilt a cube slightly larger then the PSU, is it ok?

 February 25, 2011, 09:59 #112 Member   no183 Join Date: Sep 2010 Posts: 81 Rep Power: 9 This is my first volume spilted and mesh, is it ok? i am using spacing of 2 in order to save time, is it necessary to change to 1?

Regarding the size fonction, it is not necessary to use them, but it is very helpful for controling the mesh refinement __________________ In memory of my friend Hervé: CFD engineer & freerider

 February 25, 2011, 10:05 #114 New Member   Chandrasekhar G Join Date: Dec 2010 Location: Chennai Posts: 25 Rep Power: 9 Where this size function be generally used?

 February 25, 2011, 10:25 #116 Member   no183 Join Date: Sep 2010 Posts: 81 Rep Power: 9 I have an idea here, if i can redo all this again, mean before i unite all this volume and subtract to get the fluid domain, can i copy all this volume inividually once? like copy each of PSU, HDD and so on. then after i done all the procedure and want to spilt volume, i just move back the copied item to thier respective locaton, so that i can use spilt volume with volume easy, can i>?

 February 25, 2011, 11:30 #118 Member   no183 Join Date: Sep 2010 Posts: 81 Rep Power: 9 This is what i done, at the figure, volume 313 is the volume i subtract (the fluid domain). And u can see that volume 314 is the volume which exactly the same (i guess) for the fan heat sink, this (volume 314) volume is i copy the original volume and place at the same location on it before i perform the spilt. However, spilting is success, as shown in figure, but i still fail to mesh volume 314 By the way, in the volume spilt option there is biderectional, connected, and retain, what that 3 option for?

 February 28, 2011, 03:15 #119 Super Moderator     Maxime Perelli Join Date: Mar 2009 Location: Switzerland Posts: 3,250 Rep Power: 34 No the volumes are not the same. Only outer surfaces are the same. From your flow domain you already substracted this fan. I can see it, because when you pick the whole flow domain, outer surfaces from this fan are highlighted, meaning that the surfaces are outer surfaces from fow domain. Now splitting the fan volume from the flow domain should fail, since there is no fluid domain inside the fan (hollow). End even if it worked, I don't understand what you wanted to do... Once again I don't advice you to import fans. If you really want to include fans, then create a cylinder which diameter is greater than fan's one, and split your domain with it. The cylinder will surround your fan and you will be able to pick it for meshing (cylinder substracted with fan). Then try to mesh it. __________________ In memory of my friend Hervé: CFD engineer & freerider

Meanwhile, for your knowledge, beside the geometry which guided by u, i have do 1 alternative on my own, and it is the simplified version. And, i managed to mesh as shown in the figure below. However, when i import the case file to FLUENT, test.msh in this case, i got the following error. Why? Building... grid, Note: Separating wall zone 3 into zones 3 and 1. wall -> wall (3) and wall:001 (1) Warning: ST_Malloc: out of memory.malloc_storage: unable to malloc cell1, size 51779932, t 15, myid 1000000.

Report error to your distributor. Error Object: ()
