Is there ant criteria for mesh dimension?
for example for a rectangular cubic (37.5*45*1m) what mesh size would be appropriate and optimum?

Hi, general rule is that the size of your mesh has to be able to capture the flow characteristic. You should create a coarse mesh and then refine in multiple steps to do an indipendence mesh test (sensitivity test).
