hello,In order to avoid bad mesh quality at ball-to-wall contact point,area-contacts between balls and walls were applied.However,I found that the mesh quality at area contact was not easy to be controlled. I used tetra mesh and octree method.I wonder whther i need to creat structured mesh for this geometry?
I will be very grateful for any suggestions。
