Default Tri vs Quad
Posts: n/a

I use Fluent as a solver but I suppose results are the same whatever the solver.

Is there a difference between triangle or quadrangle mesh when considering the results and the convergence?

Thank you in advance

If you have a good mesh quality there should be just one difference and thatīs the calculation time. Because meshing with quads needs 1/3 to 1/4 less cells.
