The *Equiangle Skewness* is represented as the maximum ratio of the cell's included angle to the angle of an equilateral element. The angle skewness
applies to all cell types and is available for domains and blocks. The angle skewness varies between 0 (good) and 1 (bad). It is recommended this skewness
measure be kept below 0.8 for a good grid; values below 0.9 are acceptable, depending on the solver.

**Note:** For FLUENT® users, the *Equiangle Skewness* is directly comparable to FLUENT®'s own skewness criteria. Checking this
diagnostic before export can help you catch any mesh problems before they crop up in your solution.

The *Equiangle Skewness* is computed as follows:

where:

`Qmax`

= largest angle in cell, in degrees`Qmin`

= smallest angle in cell, in degrees`Qe`

= angle for equilateral element (i.e. 60 for triangle, 90 for quad, etc.)The *Equiangle* function is based on Fluent®'s equiangle grid quality criteria.
