Enter the boundary menu.
Slits all boundary faces with cells on both sides (these cells must be in the same cell zone). A displacement can be specified to provide thickness to the boundary.
Reports the number of Delaunay violations on the triangular surface mesh and the number of isolated nodes.
Displays the names of the duplicate surfaces and prints maximum and average distance between them.
Clears marked faces.
Clears nodes that were marked using the mark-duplicate-nodes command.
Coarsen boundary face zones.
Computes the bounding box for the zones specified.
Reports the number of boundary nodes associated with edges having only one attached face.
Reports the number of marked faces.
Counts the unused boundary nodes in the domain.
Lists the number of boundary faces that are not used by any cell.
Lists the number of boundary nodes that are not used by any cell.
Creates the bounding box for the specified zones. You can specify the zone type, name, edge length, and the extents of the box, as required. You can also optionally create a geometry object from the bounding box created.
Creates a cylinder by specifying the axis, radius, and edge length or three arc nodes, the axial delta, the radial gap, and the edge length. You can also specify the prefix for the zone being created, as required. You can also optionally create a geometry object from the cylinder created.
Creates a plane surface by specifying either the axis direction, axial location, and the extents of the surface or three points defining the plane. You can also optionally create a geometry object from the plane surface created.
Creates a revolved surface by rotating the specified edge through the angle specified. Specify the number of segments, scale factor, and the pivot point and axis of rotation. You can also optionally create a geometry object from the revolved surface created.
Creates a surface by sweeping the specified edge in the direction specified. You need to specify the distance to sweep through and the number of offsets, as required. You can also optionally create a geometry object from the swept surface created.
Searches for faces on all boundary zones that have the same nodes and deletes the duplicates.
Searches for faces on a specified zone that have the same nodes and deletes the duplicates. Duplicate faces may be present if you generated the boundary mesh using a third-party grid generator, or if you have used the slit-boundary-face command to modify the boundary mesh and then merged the nodes.
Enables you to remove faces with the specified number of free edges from the specified boundary zones.
Enables you to delete faces in a non-contiguous region of a face zone.
Enables you to delete the unconnected face-zones.
Deletes all the boundary faces that are not used by any cell.
Deletes the boundary nodes that are not used by any boundary faces.
Prints the length of the shortest and longest edges on the boundary. This information is useful for setting initial mesh parameters and refinement controls.
Mark rings of faces around marked faces.
Reports the distribution of face quality in the text window.
Lists the worst face skewness.
Resolves multi-connected edges/non-manifold configurations in the boundary mesh by deleting fringes and overlaps based on threshold values specified.
Improve surface mesh by swapping face edges where Delaunay violations occur.
Randomly perturbs all boundary nodes based on an input tolerance. Some nodes will be perturbed less than the tolerance value, while others will be perturbed by half of the tolerance value in all three coordinate directions.
Enables you to make the specified boundaries periodic. You can specify the type of periodicity (rotational or translational), the angle, pivot, and axis of rotation, for rotational periodicity or the translational shift for translational periodicity. For each of the zones specified, a corresponding periodic shadow boundary zone will be created.
Mark Bad Quality Faces.
Marks duplicate nodes. The marked nodes will appear in the grid display when nodes are displayed. For a list of duplicate nodes, set the /report/verbosity level to 2 before using the mark-duplicate-nodes command.
Marks intersecting faces. Intersection is detected if the line defined by any two consecutive nodes on a face intersects any face in the current domain. The marked faces will appear in the grid display when faces are displayed. For a list of intersecting faces, set the /report/verbosity level to 2 before using the mark-face-intersection command.
Marks faces that are in proximity to each other. Face A is considered to be in proximity to face B if any of the nodes on face A are within the calculated proximity distance from face B. The proximity distance is calculated based on the specified relative distance and the sphere radius. The sphere radius is determined by the maximum distance from the centroid of the face to its nodes. The marked faces will appear in the grid display when faces are displayed. For a list of faces in proximity to each other, set the /report/verbosity level to 2 before using the mark-face-proximity command.
Marks the faces that are contained in a specified local refinement region.
Merges duplicate nodes.
Merges the face zones having area less than the minimum area.
Orients the normals based on the specified material point.
Prints information about the grid in the text window.
Projects nodes on a selected face zone onto a target face zone. Projection can be performed based on normal direction, closest point, or specified direction.
Restores the periodic relationship between face zones. You will be prompted for the type (rotational or translational), method (semi-automatic, automatic, or manual, depending on the periodicity type) and for face zones. Periodicity information (angle, pivot point, axis of rotation, or translational shift) are read in with the mesh file.
Resets the element type (mixed, tri, or quad) of a boundary zone. If you have separated a mixed (tri and quad) face zone into one tri face zone and one quad face zone, for example, each of these will be identified as a “mixed” zone. Resetting the element type for each of these new zones will identify them as, respectively, a triangular zone and a quadrilateral zone.
Resolves self intersection on manifold surface meshes.
Applies a scaling factor to all node coordinates. You can use this command to change the units of the grid.
Defines the periodicity parameters. You will be prompted for the type of periodicity (rotational or translational). For rotational periodicity, you will be prompted for the angle and axis of rotation parameters. For translational periodicity, you will be prompted for the shift vector components.
Slits a boundary face zone by duplicating all faces and nodes, except those nodes that are located at the edges of the boundary zone. A displacement can be specified to provide thickness to the boundary. The slit command only works when it is possible to move from face to face using the connectivity provided by the cells. You should slit the boundary face after you generate the volume mesh so that cells will not be placed inside the gap. There may be some inaccuracies when you graphically display solution data for a mesh with a slit boundary in ANSYS Fluent.
Smooths the marked faces.
Unmark faces in zones.
Unmarks the marked selected faces.
