Ansys Fluent patch conforming vs. patch independent
 
Hi

I'm meshing a particle packing surrounded by the fluid so we have to phases with interface. I wonder how patch independent and patch conforming method in Ansys meshing software respect the interface. I saw that patch independent creates cell at the interface which do not share a singe face e.g. one cell in the solid has interface with two other cell in the fluid phase does it make trouble for the convergence and calculation?
