Is it possible to keep the adaptive mesh for new calculations?

Discussion created by Jordan Truitt on Jan 9, 2020

I can't seem to reuse the adaptive mesh that was found from an initial study. The only thing changing between simulations is the inlet pressure on one of the boundary conditions. I'd like to be able to perform an initial mesh convergence study then run a parametric study with the converged mesh but can't seem to do that. Is my only solution to perform the adaptive mesh refinement then try to match the result with manual mesh refining?

 

I wanted to add that I just tried using the transferred initial conditions from the .fld that contains the refined adaptive mesh to a cloned project and a new blank project with no success. Changing the boundary condition then selecting "new calculation" and checking the "take previous results" option remeshed also triggered a remesh.
