Hello again,


I am using Ansys meshing now and it seems to have fixed a number of those earlier issues.



However I am a little trouble with the sharp corner at the trailing edge. Namely due to the sharpness of that corner, I am getting low quality cells in that region.



My question is regarding the feasibility of using an interface right at the top of the blades such that the sharp corner need not be meshed. So the bottom portion acting as the rotating fluid domain would look like this:



With a top portion of thickness corresponding to the desired clearance with an interface between them.



Obviously this would the interface between the regions would not be completely corresponding as there would be missing cut out from the blades in the top portion, but it would mean the sharp corner from the trailing edge need not be meshed. Is this a good approach or even something that Ansys could handle?


Thanks for any advice.


Regards,


James
