I am new to ICEM and have a question about blocking geometry. I followed some YouTube tutorials to get some basics. I have a 3 element airfoil as seen in the image. I want to create a non-linear blocking scheme to capture some more specific regions as seen in the image which is from a Google image search. I have been playing around with ICEM for a few days after not finding any tutorials for ICEM how to do this and have only been able to create linear blocking lines. Is this even possible in ICEM? Am I attempting an incorrect method? If possible, how would I get the blocking lines to adhere to the nonlinear regions? Thanks in advance.
