SolidWorks Model failing to mesh in Ansys
I have modeled a wind turbine blade in SolidWorks from standard airfoil coordinates, for simulation in Ansys. I’m using the multiple reference frame capability to generate an inertial and rotating domain for my simulation. The wind turbine blade is a void in the rotating domain.
The problem is I’m failing to mesh the rotating domain with the turbine blade void and the error messages indicate that there is a problem in the void which translates to the blade itself
To verify and troubleshoot i meshed the blade directly and seems like it’s distorted on the edges of the suction side and indicating that one of the surface that makes half of the pressure and suction side is causing the meshing failure
However I imported the geometry as a .iges and . step file and attempted meshing but to no avail. When viewed from Design Modeller, all the surfaces seem to be present but only get distorted and lose other elements in meshing. I presume maybe that’s why the void in the domain is failing to be meshed?
What could be the problem? Could you please assist
