How to Use Global and Local Size Functions – Lesson 3


In the Ansys Fluent Watertight Geometry Workflow, size functions such as curvature and proximity can be employed through both the Add Local Sizing task and the Generate the Surface Mesh task. How are they different? The focus of this video is to learn the distinction between the Local Sizing and Global Sizing options and understand how the Curvature and Proximity size functions affect mesh generation, depending on which task they are included in.
