Hi guys,

I am working on a complicated terrain. I have used pointwise to mesh the geometry and when I export to OpenFOAM it gives me warning about non-orthogonal faces. I have created almost 60M cells in one block and my terrain is the bottom of this cube. around 9000 non-orthogonal faces are found. Any idea how to solve this problem? how do you reduce non-orthogonal faces in your cases? Of course I can run the case but the results are not reasonable. In addition, I have used structured mesh.
