Hello,

I'm starting with Gambit. I have to generate a 2D mesh for an annular wing with a fan boundary condition inside. In the attached photo there is one of my first results. I would like to obtain a smooth mesh between faces (no discontinuity in the derivatives across the faces boundary edge). See the red lines for an example. I known it is possible to smooth different faces (as they are a unique face) with ICEM, but I have not a valid licese. Could you help me please?

Thanks

P.S. I'm a beginner with Gambit

-mAx- will become famous soon enough
maybe by involving more splits
For example one like this Sans titre.jpg
For the other, you have to try.

Thank you vaery much for yours suggestion, however I would like to have an automatic, fast and reliable method to smooth the mesh between faces. With ICEM it is very easy.
