ICEM problem of orthogonality in structured layer of hybrid grid
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hello,

I am writing on the behalf of one of my colleague who is experiencing some meshing troubles using ICEM. As you can see in the image attached, which represents a close view of the structured layer of a hybrid grid, the normal grid lines are not very orthogonal. I would say it is not so good. If any of you has experience with ICEM and could give us some tips on how to enforce orthogonality, this would be fantastic

Best regards
François

Try this: Mesh > Global Mesh Setup > Global Prism Settings > Fix Marching Direction (ON)
