How To Mesh - A CFD Meshing Demonstration Series Part 2

Accuracy of simulations to a large extent depends on type of mesh and mesh quality. Preprocessing can form major part of the man hours in simulation, if best practices and meshing strategy to generate quick and high quality mesh are not followed.

This series of Ask The Expert on CFD Preprocessing is intended to help users in better understanding and implementing efficient meshing strategies and parametric modeling. The sessions will predominantly have demonstrations. In the series, meshing workflows, meshing strategies for applications and productivity improvement tips will be demonstrated through several case studies. In addition, the advantages & usage of usability features which improves user’s efficiency and speed will be discussed. The selected case studies include key applications from oil & gas/process/automotive and turbo industries.

Part 2: Demonstration of Meshing of dirty & complex models like Combustor and IC Engine head in Fluent Meshing.

Aero and Auto industry meshing needs are more focused on Rapid mesh turnaround time and Clean up. One of the main challenge in Aero industry is to generate combustor mesh with reduced manual intervention, which can take few days to mesh a combustor. With Fluent Meshing in R14.5, this process is very simplified and streamlined to generate the combustor fluid mesh within a day. In Automotive industry, complex geometry requires automated tools which can clean up the geometry and generate high quality mesh. We will demonstrate how Fluent Meshing can be a handy tool for meshing several automotive geometries.
