Extrude Mesh without internal faces
I am trying to create a "2D" unstructured mesh in ICEM for use in CFX.
The procedure I am using is to first create a surface mesh, and then extrude this surface mesh one element thick.
I need to break up the fluid domain into multiple surfaces to have better control over the mesh around shapes in the domain. Therefore I have curves crossing the fluid domain.
I am finding that when I extrude the surface mesh, internal faces are created where I used curves to define the surface mesh. So there are faces in the fluid domain that I do not want.
Is there any way to prevent the extrude mesh function from creating these internal edges?
Here is an example of a simplified mesh with an unwanted internal face.
Thanks for any suggestions!
