ICEM: Number of nodes in Curve mesh (inflation)
Hi People :),
I wanna realize an inflation around my blade profile in ICEM so that the turbulence model used in Fluent would match with the y+ (figure.1). When reading the ICEM manual it tells that the number of node selected in curve mesh parameters defines the number of nodes in the selected curve or edge to inflate. So the higher is the number of nodes the closer is the spacing element of the inflation. But this doesn't happen in my case (see figure.2 wich is a zoom of figure.1). In figure.2 we can see that in fact, ICEM added correctly the number of nodes I asked him but he doesn't relate these nodes to the mesh.
How can I deal with that issue to get smaller space?

Thanks a lot in advance,
