Really small cells
Hey all,

I've been trying to creat really small cells but it always fails (collapsing faces, negative volume...) I want to see the boundary layer of water flow over a 1m flat plate for an inlet velocity up to 500m/s. How can I create really small cells without having problems?

Re: Really small cells
I'd just create the mesh large - say 100, or 1000 times larger than you want, then change the scaling factor when you write out the problem file.

Re: Really small cells
In prostar4 the vertex definitions are stored in double precision, specifically to help with very small cells. You might try it.
