Default Prism layers on duct

Hello guys.

I'm struggling with generating mesh around propeller's duct. I managed to generate structured mesh in the domain, but I can't generate prism layers(inflation). I did this mesh in Workbench and I thought that I could export my mesh to ICEM and then generate some prism layers, but when I simply try to generate it by Compute Mesh -> Prism Mesh, for selected parts it doesn't work. Is there any simple way to generate prism layers on my geometry?

I will appreciate it if anybody will help me with this issue.
Attached file contains ICEM input files and Workbench project.

if you want prism layer with structured mesh in ICEM, you need to block your geometry !

Thanks for the reply.
I need to learn blocking in the near future.
