Need help in ICEM CFD Mapped Meshing
1 Attachment(s)
Hello, everyone, I am new to the ICEM CFD. Currently I am working on a 2D domain and would like to create mapped triangular surface meshing like the one in the attached example, however, I can only managed to mesh my domain with either structured all quad elements or unstructured triangular elements and I don't know how to create such mapped triangular meshing in ICEM CFD, can I please have some tips in creating such meshing?

Thank you in advance.

you can change the quad elements to that shap in edit mesh tab of icem.

Right, more specifically...

Mesh it with mapped quads and then go to edit mesh => Change Mesh type => Quad to tri.

The hot-key is ctrl-t when in the edit mesh tab.

I should note, they won't look like that (one quad to 4 tris plus an added node), rather they will be one quad to 2 triangles (diagonal cut, no new nodes).
