T-Pipe Meshing Problem

Posted by Rob Wie at October 07. 2011

Well, I was trying to create and mesh a T-Pipe with no luck.

I tried to take advantage of the video http://www.caelinux.org/wiki/downloads/docs/Pipe2007/PipeGeom.htm where an Y-Pipe was created and meshed aswell. But with my version ( 6.3.1. ) it does not work that way.

 

So I know when I just fuse the two cylinders I do not have (a) solid(s) and cannot mesh it properly.

Is there a quick and easy way to do so? Because "Explode" with "Fuse" to "Solid" does not work.

Thus, multiple areas are not meshed.

 

See the attachement for the file.

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks and have a nice weekend.

Hi

You do not say what kind of mesh do you need. You can get a tetrahedral mesh easily: just assign "Netgen 1D-2D-3D" algorithm to Fuse_1 (picture of a result mesh is in attachment).

I want a hexahedral mesh basically.

To be able to get a hexahedral mesh you need to split you geometry into parallelepipeds (i.e. 6-sided solids) using Patrition.

See for example http://salome-platform.org/user-section/salome-tutorials/edf-exercise-3
