Hello all,

I'm trying to do a simple 3D flow simulation for a disc. In Ansys modeller, I simply made a short cylinder and made a rectangular enclosure to make the fluid domain. I want to make the region around the disk to have a finer mesh than the far field regions. What is the best to way to achieve that using Ansys meshing on Workbench? I have tried using the sphere of influence feature under sizing but it did not work.

I have attached a picture of my mesh.

Thank you.

you can select the faces of the disc and apply "face sizing" with fine size to them!
In this way, the grid size around the disc will be fine!
If you want more accuracy, I think you should do some changes in the domain!
