Hallo everyone

I have created a mesh with snappyHexMesh, with somewhat low quality.

when i run
I get "Mesh OK"

but when i run
checkMesh -allTopology -allGeometry

I get a lot of errors
- Error in face tets
- faces with ratio between projected and actual area
- Cells with small determinant
- Concave cells

and just know they are bad.

can anybody help be improve my checkMesh stats ?

I have uploaded the the snappyHexMeshDict, surfaceFeatureExtractDict and the checkMesh log to dropbox.
