Hello there,

I am trying to get the same results as in a research paper, where an inclined rectangular cavity was modeled and air was set as a working fluid.

The paper mentions a set grid size of 27x27x800. I only know how to set the element size in Meshing. Is there a way to set the grid size? I think the different mesh sizing can be the reason why my results differ from those in the research paper.


Thank you,
Arttis

Can't you just take the dimensions and divide by the number of cells in each dimension to get the grid size?
