Trimmer Anisotropic near boundaries
1 Attachment(s)
Hi all,
I have a very shallow domain on the z direction, so I activated anisotropic volumetric control for trimmer meshing in order to obtain shallow cells in the z direction. I noticed however that volumetric control is not active near boundaries, where cells have the same size in all dimensions. This produces unwanted refinement, as boundary layer is not a concern in my problem. Is there a way to fix this in STAR-CCM+ v7? I read somewhere that V8 implements a workaround for this. Is that right?

Isn't there a way to make anisotropic refinement ignore boundaries? I'm trying different strategies but none of them has worked yet. Any help would be appreciated.
