Hello everyone,

for a conjugate heat transfer simulation with thin parts
I need a mesh with more than one cells in each direction.
For the last hours I try to mesh a thin (z) long (xy) part with tets,
the results are not very got, with in all cases only on cell in
the middle of the part, the edges look good. The problem
is the grow factor of the cells. How can I control this for a constant
cellnumber(z) across the part?

Thanks for all answers,

best regards

If it is a regular domain, why not hex?
On the other hand, you can set the max. size of mesh in this special area.
