hi all

i have generated a mesh and i have a skewness factor max as 0.93 for 3 elements, the question is the future simulation with this mesh can be create a problem?
Naturally for create the mesh i have used a size function and the type is: curvature. in the critical geometry i have semplified.
i don't have any idea for create a better mesh so if you have any suggestion it's well acpeted.

thank you very much!!

It should be fine... Run it and see. The Solver manuals are usually conservative in their estimates of how poor the mesh can be.

Are the problem elements in a critical area?

You could also ask this question in the solver forum to get their feedback.
