Cell Size change in 0,125
« on: April 12, 2011, 05:34:15 am »

I want to set a Cell Size of 0,125 * 0,125 * 0,125 but Pyrosim don' show me the third number after the decimal point (the number 0,125). Si units.

Can anybody help me or is this not possible?

Thanks

No need to use an alternate mesh type. The dialog doesn't show the third digit after the decimal, but it's there. FDS doesn't take the cell size as an input. That display is for your information only. We chose an arbitrary number of digits to show when displaying the cell size - so we can avoid displaying something like "Cell Size (m): 0.01 x 0.01 x 0.00982640023445454656223551".

We need to show more digits. Probably four. Other users have run into this problem as well. Sometimes this makes it hard to fix mesh alignment problems.
