Default insertion of a cylinder in a mesh

Hi everyone,

I've tried to create a mesh "around a cylinder" but my domain is very complex and my blockMeshDict looks very big. So I want to know if there is a simple way to insert a cylinder in a mesh, that avoid complex blockMeshDict.

I have tried cellset but it depends on how tiny it's meshed. to have a correct shape.

Could anyone give me response ?
