Q)Weīre finding problems with software Design Modeller. While working with a long geometry, of about 600m, we obtain the message "Feature exceeds modellerīs size box". Is there any way for increasing this modellerīs box size?

A) The workaround is to work in mm (as if they were m i.e. set a 600m length to be 600mm). Mesh normally and bring the mesh into CFX-Pre. You can scale this to m in Pre with the transform mesh facility in Pre.

I'm using the Monte Carlo radiation model in CFX-5. My run dies at the first radiation call with a message about there being too many iterations while using Monte Carlo. The error message from the solver is:
| ERROR #666000005 has occurred in subroutine WALK. |
| Message: |
| |
| Too many iterations while using Monte Carlo. |
| This may possible be due to: |
| 1 - Highly reflective walls |
| 2 - Small absorption coefficient |
| 3 - Symmetry planes are too close, i.e. 2D geometry |
| 4 - Geometry specification error |
This ambiguous error message occurs in CFX-5.7.1 and earlier. What is causing this error?

How do I stop getting inconsistency in B.C. labels coming through into CFX-Pre when bringing in a new Mesh. The warning error "Composites that do not resolve to any primitives have been used in Locations in domain ....."

Use the 'Reload Mesh' option instead of deleting the old mesh and importing a new mesh - this resolves many of the inconsistencies. If this still persists, this means that a...

Q) I need to mesh a thin geometry to do some 2D rectangular laminar studies (driven cavity). I have tried to create some inflations along all the direction to improve my solution; I would like to divide my geometry in Cubes or Hexahedrals. Is it possible to do that in CFX Mesh 8.1, how can I create a 2D mesh?

A) We do not have a hex meshing tool within the CFX ' Mesher, nor is it possible to do a true 2D mesh. We have a pseudo 2D meshing tool (1 cell thick). To create one what you need to do is the following:

1) Under the Mesh branch in the display tree click on Options. In the detail panel you will see the Meshing strategy, in the pull down box change it to Extruded 2D Mesh.
2) You will now see the entry Extruded Periodic Pair under the Mesh branch ' This will have a red warning symbol next to it. Click on the Extruded Periodic Pair branch, and in the detail panel, fill in the surfaces(s) that form the 'symmetry' sides to you 2D problem.
3) Having done this fill in your boundary labels, mesh controls and inflation as normal. When you then hit mesh, it will mesh the 'symmetry" pair identically and extrude 1 element across from one surface to the other.

(1) The contact reactions that are reported by WB Simulation appear to be incorrect. I apply a load that is transmitted from one shell-meshed body to another shell-meshed body, through a bonded-contact lap joint. The external reactions equal this load, but the contact reactions are zero. Why are the contact reactions incorrect?

(2) But I have another model for which the specified contact surface also includes a fixed support, yet the contact reactions are correct. Why is there this discrepancy in behavior?

(3) Why doesn't WB simply use PRNLD,,,CONT or FSUM,,CONT to obatin the contact reactions?

(1) By examing the ds.dat file, you can see that the technique that WB uses to calculate contact reactions is to select the nodes and underlying elements at a contact (or target) surface, and then...

A CFX simulation using the discrete transfer radiation model seems to fail randomly and inexplicably. What are the most likely causes and how can this problem be dealt with?

This problem typically manifests itself as a random, inexplicable failure of the solver when using the discrete transfer radiation model, with the ray tracing files stored on a networked disk. The...

My SOLID168 (10-node tet) model gets corrupted and the elements appear to be missing some nodes. Is this a known error?

You are most likely hitting Defect 37642, which occurs in ANSYS LS-DYNA for both versions 9.0 and 10.0. The error is that LS-DYNA drops the last two nodes from the 10-node tet element...

Use of expressions "force" or "torque" in a setup with incompressible fluid results in an error message when the expert parameter "include pref in force = t" is applied. Is there a workaround?

This will be fixed with SP1 of ANSYS CFX 10. The current workaround is to remove the expert parameter "include pref in force = t" from the CCL and to set a zero reference pressure.

Q) A CFX-5.7.1 Solver run failed with the following error:

Remote connection to <Hostname> exited with return code 1. It gave the |
| following output: |
| |
| rsh: can't establish connection |
| > <Hostname>:Connection refused |
| |
| Check that you have typed the hostname correctly, that you have an |
| account "Tim" on the specified host with permission to rsh from |
| this host, and that (particularly for Windows hosts) it is running |
| an rsh daemon. You can use the following command to check the |
| connection to a UNIX machine: |
| |
| rsh <Hostname> uname |
| |
| or the following command if it is a Windows machine: |
| rsh <Hostname> cmd /c echo working

A) One of the reasons this can happen is that the owner of the RSH service has had his password changed. This only gets noticed when the machine is re-booted. To correct this, go to Control panelAdministrative toolsservices. Double click on the Remote Shell (RSH) Sevice. Click on the LogOn tab - now re-enter the password. Hit OK and the service should start back up.

Can I get the input files for "Figure 7.29 Applicable Transition Patterns-Transition Mapped Hexahedral Meshes" of the "ANSYS Modeling and Meshing Guide" - ANSYS Release 9.0?

The attachment to this solution contains four input files that demonstrate the capability shown in the referenced figure.

When pasting a series of commands from, for example, notepad.exe, the commands execute as expected, but the command line isn't cleared. This can be kind of inconvenient. Can we get it corrected?

This only occurs when the command input window is floating, so not floating the window would be one way of avoiding this problem.<br><br>Another alternative is to insert the following...

I'm having a problem with a cyclic symmetry model that I am trying to use in LS-DYNA. I keep getting the message "Rotated nodes not allowed with LS-DYNA elements", and thus I cannot run the model in LS-DYNA. As far as I can tell cyclic symmetry is available in LS-DYNA, but I run into this problem every time I try to use it. Do you have an example of how to do such an analysis?

Here is a cyclic symmetry example with initial angular velocity in ANSYS implicit followed by a implicit-explicit sequential solution in LS-DYNA. Please see the attached readme file for...
