Hexahedral mesh

    • evapeimon

      Hi everyone!

      I am new in Ansys and I am finding some trouble to mesh this geometry. It consists on two boxes, one inside the other, and I would like to make an hexahedral structured mesh that is fine at the faces of the internal element and coarser as the distance increases. I have tried with CutCell but it makes me use the same size for all the elements and I don't know how to make the transition. Is there anyway to do it? 

      Thank you in advance!

      Could you try to provide a local mesh sizing for the inner cube? Perhaps a face or a body sizing? This should refine the mesh on the inner box, but the other box should use the global settings.

      Please let me know how this works for you.

      Thank you.
