Could some one please let me know if there is a analogus option for prism meshing in ICEM CFD.
Hello,

I am new in ANSYS CFX. I want to solve a Dam Break problem with rectangular volumes. I have designed the 2 volumes in CATIA, and want to make a mesh with the CFD mesher. I need the 2 big cross sides to have an unstructured mesh, and make 100 laylers of it, through it' s height.

I have tried it with inflation, which seems the only way to do it, but it gives me a structured mesh.
Could somebody help me?

Thanks in advance
