 August 31, 2011, 02:29 Fluent mesh Check error #1 Senior Member   Mohsin Mukhtar Join Date: Mar 2010 Location: South Korea Posts: 249 Rep Power: 10 After exporting the mesh in fluent, and checking the mesh i get the following error in fluent: Velocity inlet zone has two adjacent cell zones. I have a velocity inlet zone which is inside another fluid zone. That means the velocity-inlet lies on 2 adjacent cell zones. It seems i have to split my velocity-inlet into 2 Velocity-inlets: one for each zone. How can i do it in FLUENT?

It should have only one adjacent cell's zone. Delete the volume zone behind your inlet, or redefine the surface for your inlet (the surface must be an "outter" surface) __________________ In memory of my friend Hervé: CFD engineer & freerider

It will alter the geometry. The velocity inlet boundary is inside the main domain. My situation is discussed in these following threads http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/flu...ell-zones.html http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/flu...ck-failed.html in which it is recommended to split the cell zones into 2. is there any possible way in FLUENT or GAMBIT to split the cell zones so that it recognized as a separtae boundary in FLUENT. Thanks

I also was assuming it was u

I have attached a picture. (For now, I deleted the lower bend region from the geomtery which i sent you). In the picture, there is a velocity inlet for air. but this inlet lies in the domain and i cannot move it out of the domain. This inlet causes trouble in FLUENT mesh check. It says it has 2 adjacent cell zones (As it is lying inside). What do u think, how this problem can be resolved?

Then split the volume containing your old inlet, with the surface you just copied. Delete the small volume containing your old inlet. Redefine your inlet on the copied surface, which has now only one adjacent zone (on the other side it is hollow) Mohsin and mayank199325 like this. __________________ In memory of my friend Hervé: CFD engineer & freerider
