Hex mesh for tangential junction
2 Attachment(s)
I am new to ICEM meshing. I would like to mesh a tangential junction of two pipe with different diameters. The small pipe is connected tangentially to large pipe in a inclined angle of 27 degree. I tried to use ICEM to generate hex mesh but it not successful. Everybody has idea to mesh it?
Thank you in advance

Hi BrolY
I use Hex mesh. I splited into 4 blocks as shown in (pic block) and associated the four edge to upper part of tangential curve (pic 1).
- Associated the vertical edge to left tangential curve and edge to right tangential curve (pic 2&3)
However, the upper face and front face is disappeared after re-meshed
