Hello, I'm trying to evaluate the pressure drop in a pin fin array in Fluent and imported a part that represents one of the repeating stripes of the fluid volume.
I selected one end as the inlet, the other as the oulet and imposed a symmetry boundary condition in Fluent on the side walls
This is what my mesh looks like:
However when I select "check case" before running the calculation, it gives me this message box:
I couldn't find anything (obviously) wrong with the mesh and I'm confused about what to do. Also, do I need to specify symmetry in the mesh window as well, like as of now, does ANSYS know that the curved regions are also mirrored?

If you run a mesh check in Fluent what does it report? The Case Check isn't infallible so sometimes misses errors and flags problems that don't exist.
