Refinement criteria
 
Hello friends. I am simulating flow around 2D airfoil (incompressible and laminar flow). I generated mesh using ICEM CFD 14.0. I am comparing my result to some experimental results. I want to know about the refinement criteria.
In my case, does refinement means that i should put more grid points on airfoil or i should decrease the distance of layers near airfoil boundary or both?
I will thankful for help..

Either or both.
