structured vs unstructured
« on: August 07, 2012, 08:20:04 AM »

Hi. I'm using ICEM CFD for mesh generation. After meshing, i save it as unstructured mesh. There is one more option called blocking mesh. Is this format for creating structured mesh? Does Fluent run structured meshes (so far as i know, fluent is an unstructured mesh solver)? If yes, how. Which one is best for yielding better results, structured or unstructured. I'm using ANSYS v14 at present.Thanx in advance.

hi mate,
first, fluent v4 (an old version) worked with structured mesh, but now, it works with unstru. meshe.
even with ICEM, if you  make a structured mesh via blocking, you need to first convert it to unstructured mesh and then export it to fluent.
