Hi All,

I am a new user of Gmsh. I created the geo file and meshed it using Gmsh GUI. From the mesh option, I changed the element size factor to create finer mesh, e.g I used element size factor 0.05, 0.03, and 0.01. However, I did not get any explanations about element size factor. Could you please explain what is that element size factor in gmsh and how it controls element size? If element size factor is 0.01, is that mean target element size is 0.01?
Any help will be very much appreciated.
