Hello is there a way to manage the mesh-refinement separately in FloEFD.
Let me explain:
For instance I created a local refinement for ensuring enough cells number in the smallest cross section.
While iterating I can see the density of the mesh in this area, and if it is fine enough I don't want to refine this area anymore, but I want to continue refining the rest of the domain (global).
In my case I set 3 refinements at Travel 1 / 2 / 3.
Now with Travel 2 the mesh is fine enough in the critical section, but quite coarse outside. And I want to have a mesh refinement at level 3 except for the local refinement
Thank you for any input

No, that is not possible. The refinements will always happen at the same time and cannot be controlled separately.
