Hi everyone,

My final year project is "Design and Simulation of HAWT".I have developed a CAD model using Solidworks, and imported in ANSYS. But now the main problem is Meshing. I have tried meshing with and without inflation layer but i couldn't capture the leading edge of airfoil. I have tried reducing element size at the blade and played with couple of other options, but couldn't improve the mesh. I'm eagerly looking for suggestions.
