Hi all,

I am doing a Masters project involving wing in ground effect. I have been trying for a couple of months to get the right mesh but to no avail. Please please help me out. My domain is broken into a number of regions and below is a close up of the airfoil region.
Ideally I want the longer rectangles n the section forward of the airfoil to follow through over that section.
ICEM is sadly not an option.

Thanks in advance

Dear Jennifer,

Before answering your question, I would like to know why you are going for such a strange meshing pattern, when you can model aerofoils using smooth structured meshes (as shown in the image).

Watiting for you reply.
