Dear experts,

I'm using shell meshing to mesh wind turbine blade , the problem is that the curvature resolution depend on mesh size. If i reduce the mesh size to capture the curvature details, specially at leading edge, the elements reach to 11 million (with the prism).

I'm used AllTri Patch dependent or independent

Any recommendation

Thanks in advance
