cyclic B.C. in Star-LT
Hi, is there anyone using the Star-LT?

It's very handful for most cases. But I got problems in cyclic B.C. setting. And none of the tutorials showing the example.

Anyone has examples with cyclic B.C. (in .mdl or .mon file)?

I think that the match of artriby mesh surface seem hard to build.

I think that this problem is not the due to STAR-LT.

You can creat a cubic and genetate a hex mesh.

And make cyclic patch with +x and -x surface.

In my experience it work.

Dear Tomosada san, Thanks for response. Yes, it worked on cubic. And it worked for cylinder(one third in thida direction) as well.

But when the rotating frame is applied, it didn't work anymore.

Any comment?
