Hello everyone,

I study on a project about flow around a ship in Star CCM+.

While I was generating the mesh, I have a trouble about prism layer (boundary layer).
I generated the prism layer around the hull, but the software cannot generate prism layer around aft and fore picks (at those locations curvature change too much)
You can see this from the pictures at the attachments.

Does anybody know how I can solve this problem?

You can change your boundary march angle in expert properties of prism layer mesh and try again. PFA the image also.
