hz283 is on a distinguished road

I would like to get the exact mesh size (not the volume but the nominal size) along one line in the computational domain. Does anybody know how to do this? I use ICEM to generate the mesh, and in fact the I specify the global mesh size and the surface mesh size. But I do not know the exact one of this set of mesh. I would like to know this because I need compare them with the flow characteristic flame scale.

Thank you very much!
