"The computational domain was then discretised using trimmed hexahedral cells in the volume, with a prismatic boundary layer mesh near the surface to capture the boundary layer flow. The body-fitted boundary layer mesh had four prismatic cells, with 10 layers of cells used on the hub cover to accurately resolve the thick boundary layer on this surface.
