I have a geometry of wind turbine in gambit,but i don't know total number of mesh,how van I find it in gambit?
is the total number of elements the total number of mesh?
thanks for your help

Yes total number of elements is the mesh size, although i guess Gambit might combine 2D and 3D elements for the total.
Import the mesh to your solver and find out the total number of 3D elements.

thanks for your help.
when I run the file with fluent,It writes:[133606 tetrahedral cells, zone 2.]
you mean it's the whole number of mesh of the geometry?
