hi pratap,

using input file (iprep) for kiva preprocessor, you can try to divide your computational domain into several blocks. if you have a triangular body, try to arrange the blocks so that each surface of the triangle corresponds with one boundary of certain block. this boundary is set as a solid boundary (face=2.0).

i hope it helps

cheers

I do not have any problem with my mesh. But the problem is how to set the boundary condition in running the case using Kiva 3v.
