Hi all,

I am currently trying to analyze a propeller in ICEM CFD. Everything was OK until meshing is done. As you can see in the trailing edge of the wing, the mesh elements are pretty low quality and even don't follow the geometry curve. I tried everything to solve it. Any Idea how to solve? Any solution will help. Thanks!

Are you sure a curve is present at the small edge? Or do you only have surfaces?
Anyway, best is to go to the menu: Global Mesh Setup > Define thin cuts
There you can tell ICEM to pay attention to the edge of your geometry.

For additional help on this menu, I refer to this query: trouble with small angles
