How to mesh axisymmetric 2D problem using prism...
 
How to mesh axisymmetric 3D problem using prism & hexa mesh.

I want to have the prism mesh at the axis & remaing hexa.

can any one help me out.

I'll avoid using hybrid mesh like this unless I have particular reason not to do so. Is hexa alone not enough for your problem?

Hi Sameer,

Just create a 2D mesh in Hexa, then revolve the mesh in the ICEM CFD Mesh Editor, specifying 1 element in the revolve direction. I believe MED will merge the nodes at the axis, creating prisms. If it doesn't, Pre may do so for you when it imports the mesh.
