how to do mesh for following geometry?

      Carefully. I'd split the outer domain such that the solid (top & bottom beams) were voids and each gap between the fins was a separate fluid volume. This makes it easier to mesh as you're not trying to figure out the share topology on the baffles.

      Can u explain briefly? I am unable to understand what u said

      You need to mesh fluid volumes, the faces/surfaces make up those volumes. To keep things simple we decompose the domain into more manageable shapes (we used to have to do this for cpu/RAM reasons too). You then mesh & label to suit the needs of the model. If you click on help and do some of the tutorials for geometry & meshing it'll probably be clearer.
      The level of refinement and meshing strategy also depend on the end goal of the model.

      I did meshing for the above geometry using Icem CFD without blocking. how to improve the mesh quality?

      How does the mesh look on a y mid plane?
