Hi all,

I'm having same trouble with a quite bad mesh. I've done the simulation with various schemes but non of them gave the good resuts. Velocity profiles are 10 times wrong from the experimental results while temperature profiles and Nusselt Numbers are close enough. It is high density sphere packing geometry and meshing whole pack is really hard to manage. I attached the properties of tetrahedral mesh.
  • Should I go for finer mesh? What would you do for getting better results?
  • Isn't it better treating schemes and linear solver with respect to high quantiles datas than max values of checkMesh?
