Hi! I have a problem of my geometry. I attached a picture. Have you found some holes of in this surface? Does it affect the mesh quality? How could i deal with it? Thanks!

ICEM is very much tolerant of small problems in the geometry. Give it a try and come here back.

But I can't generate prim mesh. And the mesh quality is only 0.4.

But when i import the mesh into fluent, the convergence curve is bad, like this picture.So I think it's the problem of the mesh. I am not sure where the problem it is.

i think it's more because of your geometry than your mesh.
You outlet is way too close to your inlet... what are you trying to model ??

Oh, maybe. I want to analyse the pressure drop of air flow through the widest path unit (it's made of four grain kernels). So I can't change the model. I am not sure if i use the structed mesh the mesh quality will change. Because I guess the Y-GRID may be better. So do you have some idea how to use structed mesh on my model? Thank you so much!

Blocking can be done. You can refer to this thread, where discussion on blocking is under way.

Hi, I used Y-grid to my geometry. But there is a problem of my mesh. I am not sure if it is the problem of block or the surface of the geometry. I think there is no problem of my block. Could you check it for me? Many thanks!

it is really complex. I have been confused with it for a month. I tried unstructed mesh but the the convergence is not good in fluent. So I am trying to use structed mesh now. Hope you can sovle it. And I will keep trying. Thank you so much for your help!

The prisms in boundary layer and tetra in the rest of the domain is good choice for this model. And convergence should be good with refined boundary layer. It is some sort of intake?

Sorry, I just started learning ICEM and don't know how to use different meshes for different areas. This is a model for airflow. The inlet is at the bottom surface. And the outlet is one of the side surfaces of this model. Somebody said that the convergence is bad becuase the inlet is too close with the outlet. I am not sure. I think i can't change the model. So, just improve the mesh quality.

You can extend the inlet and outlet domain and apply slip BOCO on them and record the data at the original inlet and outlet planes.

Sorry, i really don't have an idea about your advice. I am a newcomer. I think if the structed mesh can't change the convergence, then I will try another method. So, firsly, try the structed mesh,maybe it will work.
