Structured Meshing of Wing Surface
 
2 Attachment(s)
Dear pointwise users,
Hello everyone. I am currently trying to mesh a VAWT using entirely structured mesh. One of the problems is the meshing of wing surface at the end of blade. I am attaching a screenshot.Attachment 21933

As you can see from the picture, the quality of the meshing is very low. I tried to use the solve feature of pointwise. But still the quality of the meshing is very bad. Attachment 21934

Could anyone give me a hint about it? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Thank you very much for your quick reply. I am afraid if I am asking too much. I am a new pointwise user. Could you please give a little description of the methodology. Again Thanks.

Naruto,

Attached is a graphical description of my general procedure. I didn't mention that you should start with an upper and lower connector with the same dimension. In my case, I started with 81 points.
