 February 17, 2007, 08:39 Cylindrical obstacles in cartesion coordinates #1 Brajesh Tripathi Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links I was trying to create a cylindrical obstacles in cartesion cordinates system and i got the cylinder.dat file. i used this file in the simple room geometry (3x3x3) and finally i got good results. Now i want to know how gridding and other variables are treated for cylindrical obstacles in cartesion coordinate systems. Please help me?

At the interface cells, it uses PARSOL but formulaiton of PARSOL isnt given.

Can u please tell me that what are the input paramters for cylinder for my problem. thanks

It often works pretty well if the grid size is small. The other option is to use a 3rd party grid-generation program and use BFC's. Patti
