Basic mesh generation#

This basic example shows how to launch PyTurboGrid, load a blade model by reading an INF file, and generate a mesh.

Model overview#

Model overview.

Perform required imports#

Perform the required imports. It is assumed that the ansys-turbogrid-core package has been installed.

import json
import os.path as ospath

from ansys.turbogrid.core.launcher.launcher import get_turbogrid_exe_path, launch_turbogrid

Launch TurboGrid instance#

Launch a TurboGrid instance in the most basic way.

turbogrid = launch_turbogrid()

Find TurboGrid examples#

Find the examples folder for TurboGrid based on the path to the directory where it is installed. Calling the get_turbogrid_exe_path() method ensures use of the examples folder in the current TurboGrid installation.

exec_path = get_turbogrid_exe_path()
turbogrid_install_location = "/".join([:-2])
turbogrid_install_location = turbogrid_install_location.replace("\\", "")
examples_path_str = turbogrid_install_location + "/examples"

Ensure folder with examples exists#

Ensure that the examples folder exists.

if not ospath.isdir(examples_path_str):
    print("examples folder not found in the TurboGrid installation")

Read file for rotor37 example#

Read the BladeGen INF file for the rotor37 example.

turbogrid.read_inf(examples_path_str + "/rotor37/BladeGen.inf")

Generate mesh#

Generate a mesh with the default settings.

turbogrid.unsuspend(object="/TOPOLOGY SET")

Get mesh statistics#

Get the mesh statistics from the current session.

stats = turbogrid.query_mesh_statistics()

Save mesh#

Save the mesh.


Quit session#

Quit the TurboGrid session.
