hi , i have a problem with the smoothing of a boundary layer near a sharp angle . The starting mesh seems to be good but is too sharp and i think that without smoothing it the further simulation would give me some problems. as smoothing parameters i choose :
10 iterations on surface
5 iterations on volume
laplace smooth on surface either on volume
smooth all curves
advanced options: use orthogonal distance (surface and volume)
surface fitting
keep periodic geometry

i attach the picture of the mesh previous and further the smoothing.
