For complex geometries you have few options: Create a number of blocks with hex meshes (takes a long time) Rewrite your code for a cartesian mesh Use a hex mesher

Most any good CFD book will have a section on this, and Hoffman's entry-level CFD book does a particularly good job of describing body-fitted coordinates, as well as rudimentary grid generation techniques. The problem you will run into with complex geometries is that it is usually not possible to grid the entire volume with one structured, body-fitted grid. Thus, you have to resort to block-structured grids, where smaller patches are gridded and the grids meet at block interfaces with special boundary conditions to handle information passing, or using overset grids, which involve grids that overlap and require some interpolation technique to transfer information across boundaries.
