-     * Recall that the VSP mesh radius and size parameters are specified in the units of the VSP model. ​ In this example, the mesh sources have length of 0.01 (1 cm) and radius of 0.23 (23 cm).  At the center of the source, the triangles will be 1 cm on a side.  This will gradually fade so that at the edge of the sphere of influence (23 cm away), the mesh size will not be affected by the source.+     * Recall that the VSP mesh radius and size parameters are specified in the units of the VSP model. ​ In this example, the trailing edge mesh sources have length of 0.01 (1 cm) and radius of 0.23926 (24 cm).  At the center of the source, the triangles will be 1 cm on a side.  This will gradually fade so that at the edge of the sphere of influence (24 cm away), the mesh size will not be affected by the trailing edge source
 +     * Controlling and understanding the mesh in the model units can greatly help you develop a set of sources which will generate a good mesh for your purposes. ​ Model dimensions like the local chord length and the airfoil leading edge radius provide valuable guidance when setting sources.
