Hello All,

I have a mesh of Nozzle outlet. I want to extrude mesh radially outward to increase my domain size. Mind you I do not want to stretch it, but want to extend it. Is it possible in ICEM? Please leave your comments

Thanks in Advance

Yes, Edit mesh => Extrude => by Element normal...

You can set how many element layers to add and the thickness. If you check the help, there are some examples of using equations so you can have the mesh follow an expression for the growth law or whatever...

Please help guide development at ANSYS by filling in these surveys

This second one is more general (Gambit, TGrid and ANSYS Meshing users welcome)...
