For certain applications, the geometries can often contain parts with repeating linear patterns, such as the fins of a heat exchanger or the cells in a battery module. For such cases, the Add Linear Mesh Pattern task allows the user to create linear mesh patterns of the selected object, without needing to include the patterns in the original CAD geometry. In this workshop, we will demonstrate how to create a CFD-ready mesh using the Ansys Fluent Meshing watertight geometry workflow, which can be used for performing the conjugate heat transfer (CHT) analysis of a battery module. We will specifically look at how to use the Add Linear Mesh Pattern task to prepare a battery module from a single battery unit and demonstrate how to perform share topology to facilitate the generation of conformal polyhedra mesh.
