mr_stoked is on a distinguished road
Hi everyone,

I am trying to solve a simluation in Fluent which involves a turbine.

Fluent is telling me that I have reversed flows on the outlet face of my domain so I am trying to fix the skewness of my mesh. (as a result of suggestions in the fluent forum and fluent giving a skewness warning)

The only elements that I have left with high skewness are in the tip clearance gap at the trailing edge of the turbine blade.

I have no idea how to improve the quality of these elements and I have been trying for days!

I have attached pictures of the problem elements and my general blocking/geometry setup.

Please help where possible,
