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.

January 19, 2022 at 1:35 pmRobAnsys EmployeeYou 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.
