I want to use the cooper scheme to sweep the mesh shown in the picture title "source-mesh". The source mesh consists of a boundary layer mesh next to the cylindrical part of the face, and a size-function constrained unstructured mesh to fill the rest of the face. When I use the Cooper scheme it deforms my boundary layer mesh as shown in the picture "cooper-result". The final mesh project should be the same as the source mesh. How can I keep this from happening? Thanks in advance.

-mAx- will become famous soon enough
On the second picture, I would pick and mesh the parallel edges (by pair) on both sides form the cylinder.
It will enforce Gambit to keep the same ratio for both edges from the pair
