pkr is an unknown quantity at this point
I am working on nonnewtonianIcofoam. I refined the mesh using refineMesh utility. The current mesh structure is as follows:

Mesh stats
points: 14884
internal points: 0
faces: 29042
internal faces: 14182
cells: 7200
boundary patches: 6
point zones: 0
face zones: 0
cell zones: 0

Overall number of cells of each type:
hexahedra: 7180
prisms: 0
wedges: 0
pyramids: 0
tet wedges: 0
tetrahedra: 0
polyhedra: 20

I would like to increase the number of cells and faces in this mesh to a large value (say 200K). Please suggest the way to do it. Thanks !!
