Gambit_slope - Can I Use Slope To Create Edges?

• niko1983
In summary, the conversation discusses the process of simulating a turbulent flow around a sphere and the steps needed to complete the geometry, including creating edges using a slope. One suggestion is to import pre-calculated vertices from a text file to save time.

gambit_slope ->??

Hi All,

i am trying to simulate a turbulent flow arround a sphere...
before doings so i have to mesh the **** out of my model...
but before i can do this i got to complete the geometry.

Since i can not create Volumes directly out of Vertices (right?) i have to create edges first.

Here the questen:

can i use a slope for it??
something like:

for ( $j = 0 ; j <= 20 ; j++) { edge create "edge.$j" straight vertices "vertex.20+$j" "vertex.21+$j" real
}

this would save a lot of time!

I think it might be easier to import an array of vertices that you have pre calculated and saved in a text file.

1. What is Gambit_slope?

Gambit_slope is a software tool used in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to generate unstructured meshes for complex geometries. It is commonly used in various engineering and scientific applications.

2. How does Gambit_slope work?

Gambit_slope uses a combination of algorithms and user-defined parameters to create a mesh that conforms to the desired geometry and boundary conditions. It uses a technique called slope limiters to improve the quality of the mesh in areas with high curvature or abrupt changes in geometry.

3. Can I use slope to create edges in Gambit_slope?

Yes, Gambit_slope allows users to specify the desired slope of the mesh edges in order to control the overall mesh quality and improve the accuracy of the CFD simulations.

4. Are there any limitations to using slope in Gambit_slope?

While slope can greatly improve the quality of the mesh, it may not always be suitable for all geometries or boundary conditions. It is important to carefully select the appropriate slope parameters and regularly check the mesh quality to ensure accurate results.

5. Can I customize the slope parameters in Gambit_slope?

Yes, Gambit_slope offers a range of options for users to customize the slope parameters, including minimum and maximum slope values, slope limiting functions, and edge alignment criteria. These options allow for greater control and flexibility in mesh generation.
