I couldn't find any documentation on the refineMesh dictionary. Can anyone explain what measures I must take to refine a mesh in a particular direction?

Thanks a lot

I think you can find some examples of refineMeshDict in the tutorials (particularly multiphase/cavitatingFoam has some examples of it in use). Also there's a refinemeshDict that is well commented in applications/utilities/mesh/manipulation/refineMesh which you can see how it works. Basically there are three vectors (normally (1 0 0) (0 1 0) and (0 0 1)) which refine the mesh in the x, y, and z directions respectively. Changing those 1's to larger numbers refines it differently in the respective direction.
