error reading mesh from ICEM
Dear All

I am planning to use sliding mesh model to simulate my wind tubine. i build the geometry in gambit, exported step file, and imported into ICEM for mesh. you can see from the step file that there are two parts( one is going to be stationary and the other is going to be rotating). I meshed the whole domain in ICEM, defined boundary condition, specially defined interfaces between the two domains. i ended up with 2.8 and 3.6 million elements for two different blocking strateries. however, i have problem reading the mesh in fluent, it gives me this error when building mesh in fluent :
reporting the mesh_____fine here, then
building mesh,
error: FLUENT received fatal signal (access violation).
Do anyone have any ideas about this error?

i appreciate your comments and suggestions.

Best Regards,

Hi Small Suggestion...

Just check the volume mesh in Icem and conform the mesh.

if you get any errors in icem level just fix it.
