Exporting a mesh to Fluent … (Tips & Tricks)

Did You Know when exporting a mesh for Fluent, the user is asked if he/she would like to re-use an existing setup *.cas file, see below.

This is very helpful when morphing a Fluent mesh in HM. You can load the Fluent *.cas file into HM, morph the model, export the morphed mesh and reuse the existing setup from the initial *.cas file. No additional setup in Fluent is required then. Using this approach you can perform a manual DOE. Using the result data from the initial run (*.dat file), you can perform a restart, which cuts down the run time for the morphed design (September 17, 2012)
