The
Adapt/Boundary... menu item opens the
Boundary Adaption panel.
Boundary Adaption Panel
The
Boundary Adaption panel allows you to mark or refine boundary cells on selected boundary zones. See Section
26.3 for details.
Controls
Options
contains three different methods for boundary adaption:
Cell Distance
enables adaption based on a cell's distance from the boundary, measured in number of cells. See Section
26.3.1 for details.
Normal Distance
enables adaption based on a cell's normal distance from the boundary. See Section
26.3.1 for details.
Volume Distance
enables adaption based on a target boundary volume and growth factor. See Section
26.3.1 for details.
Contours...
opens the
Contours panel, which you can use to determine the appropriate parameters for the boundary adaption.
Manage...
opens the
Manage Adaption Registers panel, which allows you to display and manipulate adaption registers that are generated using the
Mark command.
Controls...
opens the
Grid Adaption Controls panel, which allows you to control certain aspects of the adaption process.
Number of Cells
sets the maximum boundary cell distance for adaption (used with the
Cell Distance option.
Distance Threshold
sets the maximum normal distance for adaption (used with the
Normal Distance option).
Boundary Volume
sets the boundary volume
in Equation
26.3-1 (used with the
Volume Distance option).
Growth Factor
sets the exponential growth factor
in Equation
26.3-1 (used with the
Volume Distance option).
Boundary Zones
contains a selectable list of zones on which you can refine. The boundary cells associated with the zones that you select will be refined.
Adapt
refines the cells with edges/faces on the zones selected in the
Boundary Zones list.
Mark
marks the boundary cells associated with the zones selected in the
Boundary Zones list for refinement. This command produces an adaption register. For information on using adaption registers, see Section
26.11.1.
