Correct. Dead is void (effectively) where as solid is meshed and part of the model & solution. nFor info, dead was originally the designation for non-fluid cells when we had full cartesian meshes and needed to fit the geometry into a cuboid (last needed in Fluent 4). Those cells were included in the cell count, but didn't use much RAM. The term was retained for voids in Fluent Meshing. n
