Tanmay95 is on a distinguished road
I have to find increase in temperature of water as it flows through a triangular pipe with heat flux incident on it.thickness of pipe is 3 mm which i am taking into account by modeling it in designmodeler separately(2 bodies 1 solid wall 2 inner fluid region) and joining them together using form new part.i am having trouble generating a good quality mesh in wall part as it is very thin as compared to lenghth(3mm:3m).i tried using proximity advance size function.what else can i do?

vasava will become famous soon enough
You could control the size of the mesh locally by imposing sizing for the edges and the pipe surfaces. Also try matching for the surfaces shared by the interface. If I were you I would mesh one of the end surfaces and use sweep mesh method.
