How to make same size Mesh in specific area?

      Hi, I'm ansys fluent beginner and student version user.

      I want to make mesh with same size in specific area, and other is not, with total 2*10^5 mesh.

      how can I control mesh size? I'm now analysis in 2D (Part body to Surface body using thin/surface tools).

      left figure is mine, and I want to make like right figure. 

      in left, I use Edge sizing with walls, and change Elements size, Growth rate. but there are no notable changes.

      Hello

      I recommend you to use ansys fluent watertight workflow geometry in that use the local refinement region option to create a specific mesh size in specific regions. For further understanding please refer this Ansys innovation course . Hope this may solve your problem.

      To add, make sure you have CFD Fluent (or CFX) set in the meshing preferences. That looks like a fluidic oscillator so you want a fine mesh on that whole region: you may want to split the faces to allow better control of the cell size and don't just rely on inflation.

        Yes, I set this file in Fluid Flow(Fluent) because I want to see Mach number, Pressure animation, and it's exactly fluidic oscillator.

        Previously, I try to use face split with edge sizing, but it didn;t work properly. thkin about that, maybe my setting was wrong.

        I'll check face split manual. thank you.

      Don't apply too many local sizing options, use size functions etc and remember to focus cell count in areas with high gradients. The y+ criterion is just ONE of the things to consider, the trap is that many only consider y+ so don't get a very good solution.  An oscillator with shocks, that's going to be an interesing simulation!
