Nodes Mesh

      When we meshed a solid in fluent, statistics show the number of elements and the number of nodes in the object.


      If we consider a cube with hexahedric elements, the number of nodes corresponds to each vertex of the cube, according to the mesh module statistics.


      My question is: Since fluent uses the finite volume method in discretization, wouldn't the number of nodes be expected to correspond to just one in the center of the element?


       


      Thank You

      Probably not. You're looking at the stats in ANSYS Meshing which doesn't know how the solver uses the mesh, only that it needs cells.
