I have made the mesh using Gridgen and read it in the Star-CD.Now I want to create the shells where are set into inlets.Could you tell me how to create the shells and read them into another model?Thanks very much!

Try the following in star-cd:

1.cset,news,fluid $live,surface this will create a shell on the surface of the fluid volume mesh. you can get the shell cell type in the output window after "live surface" is done.Let's say it is ctype 100.

2.cset,news,type,100 $cplot $cset,subs,zone just zoom in and pick up the cells you need for the inlet boundaries.

3.cset,inver 4.cdel,cset 5.cset,all 6.vset,news,cset 7.vset,inver 8.vdel,vset 9.vcom,1,1e9$y 10.ccom$y 11.cwrite,for_inlet.cel,all, 12.vwrite,for_inlet.vrt,all 13.quit,nosave (don't save your .mdl file !!)

Now in the working directroy,you have two files,for_inlet.cel and for_inlet.vrt.Open a new prostar,and resume another model.

1.*get,mxv,mxve (get the max vertex number) 2.*set,voff,mxv + 1 (to be safe) 3.cread,for_inlet.cel,voff (read in cells) 4.vread,for_inlet.vrt,voff (read in vertices)

you have the shells in the new model.
