class main_menu.mesh(path, service)#

Enter the mesh menu.

adjacency(*args, **kwargs)#

Views and renames face zones adjacent to selected cell zones.

check(*args, **kwargs)#

Performs various mesh consistency checks and displays a report in the console that lists the domain extents, the volume statistics, the face area statistics, and any warnings, as well as details about the various checks and mesh failures (depending on the setting specified for mesh/check-verbosity).

check_before_solve(*args, **kwargs)#

The default value for mesh/check-before-solve is “no”. If mesh/check-before-solve is set to “yes”, a mesh check operation will be invoked prior to starting solver. If grid check fails, solver will be interrupted, and relevant information will be printed in the Fluent console.

check_verbosity(*args, **kwargs)#

Sets the level of details that will be added to the mesh check report generated by mesh/check. A value of 0 (the default) notes when checks are being performed, but does not list them individually. A value of 1 lists the individual checks as they are performed. A value of 2 enables the availability of additional mesh field variables, lists the individual checks as they are performed, and provides additional details (for example, the location of the problem, the affected cells). The check-verbosity text command can also be used to set the level of detail displayed in the mesh quality report generated by mesh/quality. A value of 0 (the default) or 1 lists the minimum orthogonal quality and the maximum aspect ratio. A value of 2 adds information about the zones that contain the cells with the lowest quality, and additional metrics such as the maximum cell squish index and the minimum expansion ratio.

enhanced_orthogonal_quality(*args, **kwargs)#

Enables / disables an enhanced definition when calculating the orthogonal quality. When enabled, the orthogonal quality is defined using a variety quality measures, including: the orthogonality of a face relative to a vector between the face and cell centroids; a metric that detects poor cell shape at a local edge (such as twisting and/or concavity); and the variation of normals between the faces that can be constructed from the cell face. This enhanced definition is optimal for evaluating thin prism cells.

memory_usage(*args, **kwargs)#

Reports solver memory use.

mesh_info(*args, **kwargs)#

Prints zone information size.

quality(*args, **kwargs)#

Displays information about the quality of the mesh in the console, including the minimum orthogonal quality and the maximum aspect ratio. The level of detail displayed depends on the setting specified for mesh/check-verbosity.

redistribute_boundary_layer(*args, **kwargs)#

Redistributes the nodes in a boundary layer zone to achieve a desired growth rate after anisotropic adaption.

replace(*args, **kwargs)#

Replace mesh and interpolate data.

rotate(*args, **kwargs)#

Rotates the mesh.

scale(*args, **kwargs)#

Prompts for the scaling factors in each of the active Cartesian coordinate directions.

set_unit_system(*args, **kwargs)#

To apply standard set of units to all quantities.

show_periodic_shadow_zones(*args, **kwargs)#

Option to show periodic shadow zones in user interface.

size_info(*args, **kwargs)#

Prints mesh size.

smooth_mesh(*args, **kwargs)#

Smooths the mesh using quality-based, Laplacian, or skewness methods.

swap_mesh_faces(*args, **kwargs)#

Swaps mesh faces.

translate(*args, **kwargs)#

Prompts for the translation offset in each of the active Cartesian coordinate directions.

units(*args, **kwargs)#

Set unit conversion factors.
