Hello everybody,

I am struggling with quite the issue here. Indeed, I have a cylinder to mesh but the fluid domain has a symmetry plane that cut the cylinder in two in the axis direction, that is my domain comprises half a cylinder, stuck to a symmetry plane , an inlet and an outlet and wall around.
I have a surface mesh with quad on the cylindrical side and tri in other surfaces. Problem is I cannot grow prism from this mesh !

1) Even if I manage to do a volume mesh the prism failed
2) Without volume mesh, the prism also failed

Does anyone have an idea on how to make this work ?
