problem to defined the geometry in autogrid 5
i am student who new on autogrid 5 is working on naca blade 4412 series want to simulate mesh visualization. the problem is when i have done import from model catia the geometry of hub and shroud cannot be define. has anyone can help or show me how to define that geometry?

If you are having the latest version of fineturbo, could you refer to tutorial stated in AutoGrid5 (basics) > Tutorial 3? This will guide you how the geometry should be defined to be 'readable' by AG5 and how is the import process will be. I hope this may help.

Hi qiba,

Could i see your meridional view how is the geometry represented?

(AutoGRID 5) Problem in Geometry definition of propeller
I am trying to generate a structured mesh for contra-rotating Propeller using Autogrid 5. The Propeller geometry is in IGES formate.I have a problem in the geometry definition of propeller. In the case of a propeller, the shroud does not exist. In the user Manuel It has been said that shroud must be defined using a curve cutting the tip of the propeller definition. But I am not clear with the definition. I tried to define my geometry without shroud definition but it in the geometry check it gives me a warning saying that shroud has not been defined. Can some one help me to mesh my geometry.

Thanks in advance for your valuable information

hai ... venkat_aero2007
i think you can search this tutorial for reference manual_user_autogrid_v51_2
