help on ANSYS assignment for refining mesh
2 Attachment(s)
Hey all,

I was wondering if I could get some help with ANSYS Fluent for a project for my grad CFD class (attached).

Basically, it's asking us to refine and/or adapt our mesh such that our distribution is within a required threshold (in this case +/- 0.5K). How do can you determine this (ie. what are we exactly looking for in our data/plots)?

Also, what are the different methods/options to refine the mesh (besides starting with an entirely different mesh)? Ie. what parameters can I change to further refine the mesh?

Thanks for the help. I am using ANSYS 13.0.
