Hi all,

I'm a new CFD user and also new in the forum, so my questions could be a bit obvious for experienced users. I tried to look for the solutions to my doubts on the web but I didn't find them, that's why I decided to create this thread.

I'm going to analyse a capsule for atmospheric entry in which I'm interested in the supersonic to subsonic regimes. My idea was to mesh in ICEM and use Fluent as a solver. Does anybody with more experience think it's a good idea to use both software for this purpose?

Also, I started a few days meshing in ICEM and till now I don't know how to approach the problem properly. Should I or would be better to split the geometry and block only a quarter of the geometry since it is a revolution object? I did the blocking for the whole geometry and I'm having troubles with the premesh and computing the mesh. In the first case I get an error and in the second the software crashes when it is at 40%.

Any advice and tips would be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
