This work deals with the mesher ICEM and especially the tetrahedral mesher on two geometries : a semicylinder and a cylinder. This document is a manual to learn how to use this software through simple examples. The user can find here all the details operation since the begining (creation ot the geometrie) until the end (importation of the grid into a software)


Creation of a semicylinder grid

Optimisation of the grid :

Creation of a cylinder grid


    To conclude, we can say that ICEM is a software which gives good results for geometries composed by lines and quadratic elements. But for surfaces of revolution like cylinders for examlple (case on which we have worked) the set up of the geometry is very difficult to realize and results are not results we can expect.
