Dear All,

I met problems when I was building the mesh for a cyclone. Eventhough I tried hybrid mesh (structured o-grid block mesh) for the cylinder and unstructured mesh for the tangentianl inlet region, I still sometimes got bad qualities in the tangential inlet region. See the multi cyclone below.

Are there any recommendations for the sharp edge region? Thank you in advance

Hi Zhiyi,

have a look at Simon's guide on page 96: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0ByIL...MjQ/edit?pli=1

There is a blocking for a volute explained. But i am sure you can apply the same procedure to your problem.

With regards,
Sebastian
