Fluent does not allow to separate faces of a boundary which is adjacent to an adapted mesh. Fluentâ€™s â€œtpolyâ€ utility can be used to convert an adapted mesh into a polyhedral mesh. Face separation operation can then be performed on the resultant polyhedral mesh. Steps: This procedure was tested on a simple hex mesh. 1)Read the mesh file into a serial Fluent version and make all the necessary adaptions. 2)Save the case file. 3)Open a command prompt and issue the following command while in the current working directory. utility tpoly input.cas output.cas â€¢This command removes all hanging nodes from the adapted case file input.cas and creates polyhedral cells for those cells which contained hanging-nodes. Output file is written as output.cas. â€¢Note: If the above command is unrecognizable, please try using the full path. For example, for Windows: â€œC:Program FilesANSYS Incv160fluentntbinwin64utility.exeâ€ tpoly input.cas output.cas 4)Read the case file output.cas in a new serial session, make the face-separations and set up the rest of the case. Save the case file. This file can now be loaded into a new serial or a parallel session.
