How to Use Size Functions – Lesson 2

In the Ansys Fluent Watertight Geometry Workflow, different Size Functions such as ‘Curvature’, ‘Proximity’ or the combination of both i.e., ‘Curvature & Proximity’ can be employed through the ‘Generate the Surface Mesh’ task to refine the curvatures in the geometry and the gaps between edges or faces or both. The focus of this video is to understand what these Size Functions are and their associated user inputs. We will generate and compare different meshes to fully understand the effect of the user inputs and differences between the size functions.
