Hello forum,

I would appreciate any kind of hints that you can give me solving my problem as I am very new to Ansys, ICEM and CFD analysis in general.
As part of my master thesis I need to mesh a complete pipe system where a curved junction seems to be my biggest challenge

As you can see on the pictures I have a more complicated intersection line between the two pipes as I have seen in other threads treating similar problems.

My problem is that in the area of the intersection the mesh appears to be crossed-over

Maybe I need to change some associations or even my blocking strategy?

If someone wants my ICEM project file in order to try stuff out feel free to ask!


Your Jay
