ad281 is on a distinguished road
So I'm doing a mesh convergence study for 2D flow around a cylinder.
I'm using CFX-Mesh in ANSYs and am refining the mesh by altering the minimum edge length in the boundary around the Cylinder.
I've encountered a problem:
I've reached a refinement level where the minimum edge length at the face of the cylinder is 0.0003m. In order for the mesh to be solved, I also have the short edge limit in "verify options" to 0.0003m.
However, when I try to shorten the edge length further, the mesher fails.
Any idea?

Edit: Apologies for the mis-spell in the title!
