wagnerzs is on a distinguished road

I am relatively new to OpenFoam and CFD. Over the past few weeks I have been working on refining a mesh, but have reached a point where I am stuck.

I have a 4 degree slice of a circular object, making the mesh basically 2D, so when refining I only need to refine in 2 dimensions and not 3. I have an area that I need to refine more in order to more closely see what is happening in the area. I have tried to refineWallMesh to no avail, as this only covers a small area of what I need.

I have a feeling that I can use the refineMeshDict to achieve my neccesary results but am unsure of how to correctly use this tool.
