Common Meshing Operation+ Prism Layer Estimator

Postby miked » Thu Apr 28, 2011 3:14 pm

Tired of resetting all the custom mesh settings on your case? Turning prism layer off in solids? Turning on prism layers on fluid-solid interfaces? How about estimating prism layer size?

Well now there is a new button in STAR-CCM+ for doing those things! Attached a nbm file that can be loaded as a plugin in STAR-CCM+ and will appear as an icon in the toolbar whenever you load a sim file. If you haven’t loaded added a plugin before, it can be found under Tool -> Plugins -> Downloaded -> Add Plugins -> Install.

The prism layer estimator uses flat plate theory to calculate the near wall thickness, total thickness and required surface size to have nice stretching between the last cell of the prism layer and the first cell in the volume.

This tools has been really useful. Is there anyway to modify this script so that it works on Parts Based Meshing. Also if there was an option to remesh with prism layers after running a few iterations on a coarse mesh (without prism layers) to estimate the flow velocity.

Very nice plugin. Also wish it would work with part based meshing. Any chance you will update it for parts based meshing?
