Hi Everybody!

Some problems occured with my mesh after checking it.

At several spots my cells have a wrong volume orientation. So far I have tried to fix that, but without any success. I would be so glad if anyone could help me!

In the pictures you can see some places where these wrong volume directions occure. At some points they seem to be collapesed. But I dont really know how to interpret that. May this be because my surfaces are unexact? Well, just a guess, no idea whats going on. The error occures only within my boundary layer.

Furthermore, I have some multiple, as well as single edges. What does this mean and how can I prevent these?

Not shure if these informations are enough for you. Please dont hesitate to ask me!

Thanks in advance for your support.
