I am trying to make mesh for my vertical ground loop heat exchanger system. As i am new to fluent i am facing different type of errors while refining it. I have to control the no of elements. Can someone help me in doing that. I have a reference image of mesh that i want. I am also attaching geometry if someone want to make it. I will be very thankful.March 29, 2022 at 2:40 pmRobAnsys EmployeeStaff aren't permitted to open or download files, so you can either wait for the community to answer, or post some images.
March 30, 2022 at 10:01 amMuhammad_AmeenSubscriberHi Everyone.
Here is the image of geometry that i am trying to mesh.
Pipe is u-shaped that is inside the grouting material.
I don't have any problem when i mesh pipe and fluid geometry.
But when i try try to include grouting in the system i get this error.
Can anyone tell me why this error is coming?
March 30, 2022 at 10:58 amRobAnsys EmployeeApologies, it looks like images are partially broken again, the OP image showed up just now. The poor mesh is likely due to the cell size. You need several cells across a gap to resolve the gradients and reduce the size jump between the surface meshes.

April 8, 2022 at 9:45 pmMuhammad_AmeenSubscriberCan you please tell me how to refine that? And from which parameters i can control these metrics?
