Hi Every body,

I have been using ICEM for a few months and now I need to mesh a ball valve at 50% opening but I have not been successful yet. The 100% opening was very easy (because essentially it became like a pipe with two steps in the middle as the inlet and outlet of the ball) but at 50% opening it became near impossible for me because of the rotation of the ball and the Gasket it was in.

I was wondering if anyone has any idea on how to approach this in ICEM or had a similar problem?

Best Regards,
