Hello, i am trying to simulate the 6DOF rotation of a serrated edge wind turbine. However, due to the geometry, the mesh does not work. First i get a warning regarding failed tesselation fm mesh of some specific IDs and points. Then when generating volume mesh i get a non manifold node error and a number of dihedral angles discovered.
All of this is mostly due to the serrated edges but this is the whole point of the simulation, is there a workaround for this issue? Some way to alter the serration shapes? I am using watertight geometry mesh (tetrahedral).
Kindly find below the geometry of serration.April 25, 2022 at 3:18 pmRKAnsys EmployeeHello,
In watertight, make sure you set local sizing for the teeth part of the geometry.
First, make sure the geometry does not have any errors. I would suggest opening the geometry in SpaceClaim and do a geometry check to see if any errors can be detected. If there are any errors, you can use the Repair tools to fix the geometry.
April 25, 2022 at 3:26 pmchehadeSubscriberthank you for replying to my posts. I get 0 fault detection, however there are hard edges/sharp angles which are a must since the project is about serration. The problem now is that refinning mesh in tetrahedral volume generation is never ending, i think its due to that. i also get the following error when importing geometry:
Label = 'ANSYS_MESH_FM_WARNING_ID_MESHINGMODEL_TESSELLATION_REFINEMENT_NOT_ACHIEVED_DEVIATION_TOLERANCE'
EntityIDs = (1067, 2079, 3061, 1067, 2079, 3551, 3061, 3551)
Points = (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)
