Question about a T-pipe mesh
Hi, Simon,
I'm a beginner of ICEM, and have some problems when I want to mesh a T-Pipe(one pipe is much smaller than the other one). The quality of the mesh is very bad, and after I created the Ogird, it went worse. could you give me some hints?

Thanks and best regards!:)

Hello Ryen,

I just done an initial mesh on the geometry, i think this is useful for you.Do some basic tutorials on blocking to get some experience.

Thank you , Mohan!It worked very well!
I've just finished some tutorials, but still find it's very difficult to do the Hexa mesh by Icemcfd in a practical case.

Blocking skill usually comes with experience... Tutorials are a way to get some guided experience, but then your real problems teach you from there...

The hardest part for many people is just to imagine what sort of blocking they want. If you have that, then the rest is just the mechanics of using the tool.

Yes Simon I agree with your point.
