I have tried different shapes such as sphere,box,wing but all in vain..no adaptive mesh refinement in calculation control option..(solidworks flow simulation 2014)
Flow does not use individual surfaces/features to control mesh like Structural does. Instead it has an algorithm for dividing cells into smaller cells to approximate curvature when using cell or cube based mesh. Moving those sliders to higher numbers results in more cell division and thus a denser mesh. It is recommended to stay in the 1-5 range, usually 2 or 3 on all sliders will be very good mesh. You can experiment by running the simulation and unchecking 'solve' so that only the mesh is formed, then inspect it by making a cut plot with 'show mesh' selected.
Plzzz Help...I have searched almost everything but couldnt find any solution ...
The adaptive mesh controls are found under the initial or local mesh options. However, you must uncheck 'automatic settings' to find them.
Actually I am kinda new to solidworks simulation. Do these controls set mesh denser around the solid surface?
I realize this is an old post, but I do not believe the original question was ever answered here. Adaptive meshing refers to the solver refining the mesh as it iterates, not the the initial parameters of the mesh.
In my experience, Floworks does do adaptive meshing, but I do not know how to control it. Just picking this back up after a long downtime. I will do some investigating myself and try to post again in a week or so.
