Hi All,

I have an issue with 2 skew faces I cannot remove. I've made the mesh as close to a 1:1 ratio as I can, and tried modifying the boundaryskewness and internal skewness but I am left with 2 skew faces regardless of what I try.

I have attached 3 images of the domain, showing the skew faces as a glyph, then what the surface mesh is like. I previously have had no issues with skew faces, but cannot remove these. If anyone can help, that would be greatly appreciated.

The Blockmesh is as follows:

convertToMeters 1;

vertices
(
(60 -2451510 -1765)
(1880 -2451510 -1765)
(1880 -2449793 -1765)
(60 -2449793 -1765)
(60 -2451510 -1400)
(1880 -2451510 -1400)
(1880 -2449793 -1400)
(60 -2449793 -1400)
);

blocks
(
hex (0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7) (10 9 2) simpleGrading (1 1 1) //was13 12 2
);

edges
(
);

boundary
(
outlet
{
type patch;
faces
(
(0 4 7 3)
(1 5 4 0)
);
}

(3 7 6 2)
);
}
