matheusguzella is on a distinguished road

I'm using ICEM CFD 12.1 for meshing a wind tunnel with hexa elements.. but I don't know (I don't have much experience with hexa meshing) how to make to correct associations, since I'm using only half of the model (as can be checked on the file attached).. I'm meshing this model for a project on my university, I tried to see the tutorial but I couldn't solve this problem..

Best Regards,

Matheus Guzella

If you took the section 45 degrees from this one, it would have 4 good corners and would be much easier to hexa mesh than this triangular section...

However, you can still handle this triangular section with a quarter ogrid (aka Ygrid) or wedge (collapsed hexa) topology...
