Question Orthogonal vs. Non-Orthogonal Blocking

Hello Everyone,

I had appended this question onto one of my previous threads, but realise I might get more traffic starting a new thread.

I am hoping I could get some points of clarification on a structured mesh with orthogonal blocking (rectangular blocks) vs non-orthogonal blocking (like trapezoid blocks).

If I were to implement these different blocking strategies, I would need more nodes for the orthogonal case to 'make up' for the fact that I could not implement nodes along the diagonal with the non-orthogonal case, right? This is assuming I keep the number of nodes along each line the same.

Hope what I am asking is clear.
