Axial Fan flow Meshing
Hello Everybody,

Can somebody suggest me what kind of meshing is good for simulating Axial-Fans Flow, hex-dominant or tetra mesh with primatic layers. And which regions i need to keep mesh refinements, and how can i decide my cells size?

Thanks in Advance

Prefer Hex-mesh if possible for the rotating fan part! Refinemented mesh will be needed in the gaps between the rotor of the fan and the casing!

good luck, thomas
