Hi, I'm a mechanical engineering student and also a neophyte of CAESES. First of all i'd like to thank all the people who will answer to my question; I'm trying to modify an example model of a PFi engine in Converge CFD and mainly i'd like to modify the piston bowl, in order to improve some effects. I've discovered CAESES in this way, but I was unable to find very accurate information. So, I'd be really grateful if someone can tell me how to modify only a single part (the piston bowl) of the imported model ( thus maintaining all the existing geometrical relationships, defined before in Converge CFD) and, if I don't ask too much, what are the steps to follow in order to do this independently.

Thanks for your attention, again.

Hi Pablo,


you can import a surface.dat file into CAESES. It will split each boundary so that you have a trimesh for each boundary. This means that you can re-model certain surfaces and afterwards combine again with the rest of the original surfaces/boundaries. 


There is a tutorial on how to create a piston bowl inside CAESES. This will help you I guess.





best regards
