saidc. is on a distinguished road

I've a really complex geometry and I can't create better mesh than I've already done. Because of this I need to force the foam to get accurate results but it diverges with high nNonOrthogonalCorrectors. I calculated 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 0.99, 0.999, 0.9999 quantiles of mesh data to describe it as much as possible. I believe 0.9999 is the one that carrying more information. The simulation is laminar, closed natural convection case. All boundries are wall and has adiabatic bc. Solver is buoyantPimpleFoam.

I want to know your ideas how you would set the fvSolution and fvSchemes for this mesh. I attached meshDescription.png, please check it.
