CFD_Aspirator is on a distinguished road
Hello fellow CFDians,

I am trying to simulate flow over a plate in 3d. For this I have a geometry of 100*100*15 dimensions. The liquid jet impinges on the base and flows side ways to leave the domain.There is turbulence involved, hence boundary layer mesh is required. I am meshing using ICEM CFD. For this problem I can
1) mesh using all Hexagonal elements or
2) mesh using hexa core, prism mesh in boundary layer and
triangular surface mesh.

Which mesh is better to use??
