CFX-4 Interface

Solver CFX-4
Type of mesh structured mesh
Dimension 2D and 3D



The CFX-4 interface:

Creating the CFX-4 Input File

The input for the translator is composed of a multiblock structured mesh, its boundary condition file and associated topology file. To create the CFX-4 input file(s), select the translator "CFX-4" in the "Output" menu. After clicking "Write input" you can specify options for the CFX-4 interface: The interface generates the CFX-4 file(s) in the project directory.

Supported boundary conditions for CFX-4

Defining boundary conditions for CFX-4

The boundary conditions can only by applied to surfaces and blocks. Please refer to the General Remarks section for more details.

I.  3D boundary condition or 2D patch type:

    A list of flags are recognized by the translator and the CFX-4 solver for 3D boundary condition and 2D patch type.
    After selecting a 3D or 2D topological entity, select one of these flags.

II.  Block or patch name:

    After selecting a block or surface family, select "Block or patch name" in the boundary condition GUI then enter a name.

    A patch type must be defined on boundaries for a patch name to be recognized.
    A patch name alone is NOT recognized as a valid boundary condition.  However, a patch type alone is valid.

III.  Patch group number:

   To specify the patch group number, select "Patch group number" in the boundary condition GUI then enter a number.

IV.  Periodic information:

   For meshes with periodic faces, the translator automatically generates the periodic patch information.
   Any other boundary settings on periodic faces are ignored.
