Smooth/Swap Grid Panel
Smooth/Swap Grid panel controls smoothing and face swapping of the numerical mesh. See Section
26.13 for details about the items below.
contains parameters associated with smoothing the grid.
indicates whether the Laplacian or the skewness-based smoothing method is to be used. Select
skewness from the drop-down list.
(for Laplacian smoothing) sets the factor by which to multiply the computed position increment for the node. The lower the factor, the more reduction in node movement. This field appears when
laplace is selected as the smoothing method.
(for skewness-based smoothing) sets the minimum cell skewness value for which node smoothing will be attempted.
FLUENT will try to move interior nodes to improve the skewness of cells with skewness greater than this value. By default,
Minimum Skewness is set to 0.8 for 3D or 0.4 for 2D. The
Minimum Skewness field appears when
skewness is selected as the smoothing method.
Number of Iterations
defines the number of successive smoothing sweeps performed on the grid.
provides information on the most recent face-swapping operation.
displays the number of faces that were swapped based on the Delaunay circle test.
displays the total number of faces that were visited and tested for possible face swapping.
initiates the desired number of smoothing iterations.
exchanges the faces of cells for which the circle test is not satisfied.
