I cannot find the skewness of a mesh in mesh control settings in flow simulation. Does Solidworks Flow Simulation have features that determine the skewness of a mesh. Skewness is one of the primary quality measures for a mesh.
you're looking for something like a mesh quality check?
currently you need to do that manually
thank you for informing me, yup im doing a mesh quality check.
sounds like a great enhancement request though
note, you could go into the mesh results and count partial cells...etc. that is a measure of quality. same goes for looking at cut plots with "use cad geometry disabled".
but also remember, this isn't the same technique as finite element. do you have finite volume mesh criteria references?
The mesh created in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation is a structured quadrilateral mesh, so there isn't any skew-ness involved. Cell aspect ratio would be something to investigate, so you'd likely want to keep an eye on your high-gradient areas of your results and refine the mesh at those locations, or use Solution Adaptive Mesh Refinement.
flow won't really make high aspect ratio cells unless you use control planes
but agree on all your points and exactly where I was going.
was wondering if the OP had some references that could be helpful to new users
thanks david I appreciate it
