Suppose we have some kind of geometry. For sumplicity let it be a right angle. After generating simple tetrahedral mesh using ICEM 11 we can discover that tetrahedrons that lie near this angle don't fit to it - tetrahedrons are so big and coarse that they can't duplicate the form of right angle. The question is how to fix it?

click on the "right angle"-spline(s) -> set spline-mesh options to a appropriate low mesh size -> mesh curve -> mesh all ... voila

that was a problem I had to handle with too...

Sorry but I misunderstand something. Do you propose to set curve mesh options using "Mesh -> Curve Mesh Setup"? Should I set finer sizes until mesh fits good to "right angle"? I can't really understand what does "Mesh -> Mesh Curve" do. And one more thing: the "right angle" is formed by two surfaces and there are no curves, so I can't setup anything concerning curve.

I think there should be some tools concerning aligning mesh with surfaces in edit mesh tab...

Have you tried creating a curve at the intersection? Run the Repair Geometry/build topology tool ( check the filter points and curves options). ICEM always puts nodes on points and curves so this should fix your problem.

Let us know if it worked,

Unfortunately, after repairing geometry mesh couldn't be built properly - thousands of mistakes and problems (((
