I have a 2D wedge to represent a rotating lid driven flow. I have been using only 1 cell along the thikness, as suggested in the documentation. I would like to know if it is correct to increase the number of the cells in the thickness.

Thanks

Thanks.

I have reduced the angle of the wedge from 5 to 1.5 as I refined the mesh in both x,y directions to assure convergence. Is this procedure correct?
