How to mesh the external waterflow of a MCT blade
hello，everyone，I'm working on a marine current turbine （MCT） blade，it looks exactly like a wind turbine，except that it works underwater.
the blade got sections of NACA 634XX with really sharp trailing edge，and it is twisted. Now I want to mesh the fluid domain around the blade, a cylinder with a blade shaped hole. I failed meshing it in ANSYS mesh，so I think maybe ICEM CFD can do the job. how to split the block， or unstructured mesh？ I am confused. someone help me？ thanks a lot！
