3D wing meshing
hi everybody,
I try to mesh a finite wing ( NACA 2415 airfoil), I mesh with and without boundary layer but when I check the skewness it has high skewness value (>0.9) in the trailing edge in both cases.
Coulde you give me a solution for these cases Im doing, Thax in advance .

I used Design modeler, but now I'm trying to use ICEM.

I'm trying to mesh a 3D wing for validation, my airfoil is FX63-137, I've used Gambit but I found out that it was easy to mesh 2D but 3D , so I'm learning to use DesignModeler.
I have a problem that I can know how to block this wing in a domain, and how to creat a domain with all quad mesh.
Could you give me some advices or some tutorial for me to learn?

Yesterday, I made a mesh but it is a tet mesh, and I checked the skewness is <0.9, is it ok for my calculation? Do i need to check other quality?

Finally, thanks for your helps
