Query about Boundary layer in Gambit
 
By default, Gambit produces quadrilateral elements in the boundary layer. It is possible to obtain triangular elements( even could be right angled triangles) in the boundary layer? Thanks in advance

in 2D , it is quad...if you create a BL from a tri mesh in 3D, it would be a prism element..in order to maintain constant thickness.

I am interested in generating triangular elements in 2D. Is it possible using Gambit?

there is a tool in gambit for splitting 2D quad faces into triangles using the diagonals
