Error importing meshed geometry to Fluent Setup

    • Andrea159357

      Hi, i'm trying to analyze an airfoil with fluent following tutorials on youtube. I create geometry and mesh but i can't load it on setup because pops up an error message caused from geometry definition command: boolean

      Hi Andrea,

      I can recommend a free course on edX.org called "A Hands-on Introduction to Engineering Simulations."

      This course uses ANSYS Student 18.2 and Module 5 is to build a Fluent model of the flow around an airfoil.

      I attached the archive you start with and you can watch the videos in the course to learn how to operate Fluent.

      Cornell University developed the edX course, but they also have this website with the same model.

      Can you please attach the whole workbench folder and files zipped and I will try and see what is the problem.

      thanks for your attention Raef, i attach the folder containing al the wb files. It's been 2 days that i'm trying to do it but i really can't fix it. Thanks a lot. 

      Now it keeps popping up the message of boolean error even if i don't using it in geometry definition.

      Update your mesh cell and open Fluent with 2D double precision option. It opens up perfectly here:

      I've already done it. I think it's a installation problem. I unistalled ansys, delete all temps file and reinstalled but it keeps popping up this error even if i don't use the command boolean in geometry definition.
