I have been trying to model some prism layers over the surface of an aerofoil, and no matter what parameters I seem to change I cant seem to make them change in shape.

Does anyone know why there is a peak in the centre of the aerofoil (please see attached photo), or how to best go about editing my prism layers?

Thank you

Try to reduce the cell size at the area where you have the bubble. Try to maintain the cell size at the leading and trailing edges.
