Hexaedra with hanging nodes ?
Could you please let me know if the unstructured flow solver of Fluent is able to treat hanging nodes in hexaedra meshes ?

Thanks in advance,

Hanging node scheme is possible in FLUENT.

Re: Hexaedra with hanging nodes ?
A) Do u mean hexahedra? FLUENT splits a hexahedron into 8 hexahedra. B) Hope you are aware of the fact that the hanging node adaption has a memory penalty associated with maintaining the grid hierarchy and temporarily storing the edges in 3D C) So control the adaption specially while using hanging node. D) for 3D, u can't use conformal in fluent as you know.
