In this workshop, we will see how to use the Ansys Fluent Meshing Watertight Geometry Workflow to generate a CFD-ready mesh for a turbine blade geometry, that can be used for conducting a conjugate heat transfer analysis. We will specifically highlight how to set up rotational periodic boundaries using the manual method in this model. We will also look at how to add curvature local size control to accurately resolve the curved cooling passages. Finally, before generating the volume mesh, we will create boundary layer mesh in both fluid and solid regions for better prediction of temperature gradients.
