Ok, I am waiting for the new version now.

Hi Benjamin,



There is a corrected bug in the 8.0.2 version, that will be available in the next official version. It will be public very soon (today or the next week), so you will be able to mesh your model.

I thought it was already fixed in the 8.0.2 version, so I'm sorry for have not telling this to you before.



Thanks for notifying us this irregular behaviour of GiD.



Best regards,



ABEL

Hi Abel,



I get your point yes, but still I am not able to get it working myself.

If I define the interior cylinder volume as structured of semi-structured GiD crashes. I am using version 8.0.2, so that should work...?

Hello,



You have to ensure that the line divisions are compatible.

For example: if you want to mesh one four-sided surface with structured quadrilateral and you assign 2 and 3 number of divisions to opposite lines of the surface, GiD will mesh both lines with 3 number of divisions, to make the mesh compatible. May be this is the reason why your circle lines are meshed with an odd number of divisions, even if you assign an even number of it (in your case 2).



A part from that, which GiD version are you using? I recommend you to use the last official version (8.0.2), because there are some bug fixed from older versions.



Regards,



ABEL

I see that your mesh is indeed working, but I cannot discover what you changed to make it work. I defined the volume as structured mesh and the front and end circles as unstructured. I still get the error messages that for the circular surface 'all contour lines must have an even number of sides'. The circles have 8 sides and I defined two elements on each side. I do not see why this doesn't work. Can you give me your approach?

Hello,



It seams that you had not assigned compatible meshing data to entities.

Using GiD, hexahedra elements can only be done using structured or semi-structured volume mesh, so all the volumes must have this kind of meshes. I send you an example of a possible mesh of your model.

ABEL

You can also try the other option pointed by Abel: subdivide the circle in 4-sided structured parts.

I attach an image of two possible patterns. The second one can have acceptable quality.

Hello all,



I have the following problem: I want to simulate the flow around a cylinder in 3D. The cylinder must be detached from the sides of the domain in order to see edge effects. The code that I am using accepts only hex elements; basically I use quadrilaterals extruded tot a third dimension. The problem now lies in modelling the two ends (circles) of the cylinder, since GiD does not allow me to model them as quads... What is the solution for this?
