Resolving Boundary Layers with Unstructured Quad and Hex Meshing: On-Demand Webinar

All things being equal, CFD practitioners prefer to use hexahedral mesh cells in the boundary layer for the improved robustness and accuracy they bring to the flow solver. Traditionally, a hex grid would be created using a structured grid technique … Continue reading
