Default need help on Prism Mesh Generation
Posts: n/a

I have a problem while generating the prism layer around a tube with varying cross section (from round to rectangular). I put the natural size of 1 to catch up the sharp corner at the rectangular section.

I keep getting the pyramid elements (ie. the prism layer walk away and doesn't generate properly at the corner) at the corner of the rectangular end. Try to vary the parameter but still get the pyramid elements.

Can anyone please advise me on how to get rid of this problem? The quality of tet & tri elements are above 0.4. I can't really understand why it still not able to give a good prism mesh anyway.

Anyone know what does this message mean:

cannot insert this vertex (126860) into the volume dimension (2)

Thank you very much. Pete.

Part of the message from ICEM5:
