hello friends,

i am a new kid in CFD. I am using starCCM+ for one of my projects. It would be of great help if you could explain what is "cell skewness" and why is it important. also please indicate a better value for cell skewness and explain why it is better.

many thanks,

arun

Hi,

That was quite helpful.Yes I will try googling it. But i thought people who are actually into CFD can give a better explanation. But yeah "85 degree" was quite helpful. Thank you.
