Hi,

Could anyone please tell me what the dimension of "minThickness" under "addLayersControls" in "snappyHexMeshDict" is?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi,

normally it should be [m].
If you switch off the "relativeSize" you get an absolute value. If its falls the height of your cells depend on the nearest cells to your BC. Have a look at the snappyHexMesh Wiki and the presentation published this year at the 7th workshop
