How could I build symmetrical mesh?
I had some trouble. I used pro-modeler to creat the mesh. The model is a sphere in a rectangular. I want to build mesh is symmetrical in right hand side and left side in the sphere. How could I build the symmetrical mesh? (I try to use STAR-CD to use symmetrical boundary condition in the half of the model, but it is not convergence. Because the symmetrical boundary condition must not have a gradient, I am so confused.)

Re: How could I build symmetrical mesh?
to do that just build the grid for half of the domain then use the star-cd command cvreflect. that will creat an indentical mesh on the second side.
