Default Meshing Film cooling geometry

Dear All,

I am trying to mesh a film cooling geometry. In my fluid domain, I have the plenum, the cooling holes and the freestream. I am using Ansys ICEMCFD ver 10.0.1 and meshing the domain using tets and prisms. I am having difficulty getting reasonable quality mesh at the exit of the coolant holes. I tried to get a conformal hybrid mesh, but that didn't produce a solveable mesh. Would anyone be able to give me any adivce on how I would be able to mesh such geometry please? Should I be trying the mesh the geometry by producing a non-conformal hybrid mesh? The Freestream would contain hex elements and the plenum and cooling holes would have tet elements?

Thank you, Yours sincerely, JT

Use pure hex mesh unless you have any particular reason not to do so.
