Hi everyone,

I have a problem about the use ICEM to create the bicycle mesh to simulate in CFD, but when I finish the geometry in S.W and translate to igs , x_t , x_b , step.. anyone that I can try, and import to ICEM, I can see a good geometry surface in ICEM, but when I use the all tri mesh to create the shell mesh on frame, the fork will fail ,I don't know how to fix it, anybody could help me, I will thank you very much!!

Did you build topology after importing the geometry? Could you share your geometry file here?

Yes, I have topology and fixed the broken surface, No problem, I upload on google, thanks

Chien, a quick question, are you trying to analyze the external flow around the bicycle or an FSI study?

Looks very interesting project. 

Have you finished CFD study? I assume you are targeting for 1 way FSI, in that case, CFD analysis don't need such a detailed mesh for bicycle body.
