Stable Mesh

      Hi good night!!!!


      I was in need of a bibiliography that teaches how to get a stable mesh with Ansys, does anyone know of a book that teaches you to get stable meshes with Ansys?

      Hi Daniel,


      What do you mean by a "stable mesh"?

      Hi Peter, good evening !!!!


      I wanted a bibiliografica reference or a tutorial that taught the steps to obtain a good mesh.

      Which solver are you wanting to use? The mesh requirements for Mechanical are very different to Fluent, and different again to the Explicit or Maxwell.

      Hi Rwoolhou, good morning !!!!


      The simulations will be done in both Mechanical and Fluent


      Is there any tutorial that teaches you how to get a good mesh?

      OK, thanks for clarifying. 


      First off, the mesh requirements differ between the codes so you shouldn't use a Mech mesh for CFD and vice versa.  There are tutorials covering meshing (and requirements) but I'm not sure what is available in the public domain: the ones I know of are on the ANSYS Customer Portal and Learning Hub and aren't accessible to students. 


      Having said that, put "ansys meshing tutorial" without the " into YouTube and you'll see several available.  I also recommend sketching out the geometry before you start are you want to cluster mesh in regions of high gradient in both CFD & Mechanical: when you start out that will require some thinking! Check the Cornell MOOC too  https://www.edx.org/course/a-hands-on-introduction-to-engineering-simulations
