6.6.1 Grid Size

You can print out the numbers of nodes, faces, cells, and partitions in the grid by selecting the Grid/Info/Size menu item.

Grid $\rightarrow$ Info $\rightarrow$ Size

A partition is a piece of a grid that has been segregated for parallel processing (see Chapter  31).

A sample of the resulting output follows:

Grid Size

Level    Cells    Faces    Nodes   Partitions
    0     7917    12247     4468            1

 2 cell zones, 11 face zones.

If you are interested in how the cells and faces are divided among the different zones, you can use the Grid/Info/Zones menu item, as described in Section  6.6.3.

If you are using the density-based coupled explicit solver, the grid information will be printed for each grid level. The grid levels result from creating coarse grid levels for the FAS multigrid convergence acceleration (see Section  25.6.4). A sample of the resulting output is shown below:

Grid Size

Level    Cells    Faces    Nodes   Partitions
    0     7917    12247     4468            1
    1     1347     3658        0            1
    2      392     1217        0            1
    3      133      475        0            1
    4       50      197        0            1
    5       17       78        0            1

 2 cell zones, 11 face zones.
