Edge association to curved curves

I'm doing a block-meshes for a flow in curved channels and I'm having the same problem over and over again. I associate the edges to the curved curves and sometimes the mesh does not really adapt to the curve.

I usually try to solve this problem by additionally association the faces to surfaces, vertices to points and so on... But that does not always work out.

I attached a screenshot as an example. Can somebody tell me what I am doing wrong?

Thanks in Advance!

Here is some more information:
I'm using ICEM CFD 13.
The geoemtry is imported via WorkBench Reader from SolidWorks. But I deleted and created several geometry items in ICEM and it did not change anything.

I still do not have a solution for this problem.
If there is somebody has the time to look over my blocking, i would be happy to send you my ICEM project files.

Hi Murx,

did you ever find the solution to this? I think i'm having the same problem (in 2D)

I actually don't remember anymore but I'm sure it was my own fault. Did you snap the vertices after associating the curves?
