We've had many enquiries from people wanting to know more about meshing, so I thought I’d offer some advice on the approach I typically use when beginning a meshing project. Meshing always starts with the geometry and the age old adage “Garbage In = Garbage Out”. Anyone that has been running CFD solvers for a while knows all too well how important a role meshing, and for that matter clean geometry, plays in any CFD simulation.
