Hello all,

I'm new to geometry and mesh generation. I'm trying to make a simple tank with airflow into the tank on the bottom and outflow on the top. However because i'm trying to replicate a real object the outflow should consist of 4 separate pipes. How could I arrange the faces in Salome so that my mesh is of a good quality? Included is a picture of the top of the tank, with the location of the four exits on top. Is there a way create a good mesh with this kind of geometry? If this is not possible, or very hard. What would be a good substitution?

Previously I had one cylindrical face on top of a smooth cylinder, this however gave a very skewed mesh.

The plan is to run the simulation in openFoam eventually.
