Posted Thu February 03, 2005 @05:00PM

Help Desk marta writes "Hi everybody,

I’m working with Fluent and I need to split my mesh of a strange pipe into two parts. The problem now is that I would like to use the Initialization section with Patch, to initialize the entrance of the second pipe with the data coming from the outlet of the first pipe already calculated.

Thanks for your help"
