Warning in ANSYS Meshing
Hello everybody,

I`m new in ANSYS, when I mesh some geometry in the Ansys Meshing, there is a warning: "Inflation created stairstep mesh at the some locations". What the meaning of this warning? If I use this mesh on Fluent simulation, is there any effect about this warning to the result of simulation?

Thank you very much for the reply.
