USING THIS TUTORIAL GUIDE What’s in This Guide © Fluent Inc., Sep-04 0-1 0. USING THIS TUTORIAL GUIDE 0.1 What’s in This Guide This guide contains step-by-step examples that teach you how to use GAMBIT to create and mesh various geometries. Each example illustrates at least one new concept with respect to GAMBIT geometry creation and mesh generation. Tutorial 1 includes explicit instructions for all steps in the geometry creation, mesh gen- eration, and examination of a completed mesh. Its purpose is to introduce the beginning user to several basic features and operations that are available in GAMBIT. The remaining tutorials are designed for the user who has read or worked through Tutorial 1 or who is already familiar with GAMBIT. Consequently, they are not as explicit in their instructions as is Tutorial 1. Some of the tutorials involve the importation of geometry data from existing files. Specifically, the tutorials that involve data import, and the type of data imported, are as follows: Tutorial 5—IGES data Tutorial 6—IGES data Tutorial 7—Turbo data Tutorial 8—ACIS data Tutorial 9—Turbo data Tutorial 11—STEP data Tutorial 12—Direct CAD Import Tutorial 13—IGES data Tutorial 14—STEP data The files that contain the data to be imported are located in the directory where GAMBIT is installed. (NOTE : This file is included on your installation tape or CD.)

How to Use This Guide USING THIS TUTORIAL GUIDE 0-2 © Fluent Inc., Sep-04 0.2 How to Use This Guide If you are new to GAMBIT, you should first work through Tutorial 1 in order to famil- iarize yourself with the GAMBIT graphical user interface (GUI) and with basic geometry creation and meshing procedures. You may then want to try a tutorial that demonstrates features that you are going to use in your application. For example, if you are planning to start from an existing geometry that requires some cleanup, you should look at Tutorial 5. Each tutorial demonstrates different GAMBIT features, so it is recommended that you do each tutorial in order to get the full benefit from this Tutorial Guide. Note that Step 1 in Tutorials 2 through 6 requires you to select the solver to be used for the CFD calculation. In many cases, you could select a different solver than the one used in the tutorial. The solver selection is included in the tutorials to demonstrate the process of selecting a solver. It also illustrates that the choice of solver dictates the options avail- able in various forms (for example, the boundary types available in the Specify Boundary Types form).
