MRF mesh generation using snappyHexMesh

Posted November 11, 2010 at 09:28 by amgode

Generating a mesh with a MRF region using snappyHexMesh:

-- using cylinder option (primitive shape available in OF-1.6 and above) and defining it in the geometry sub-dictionary in snappyHexMeshDict

type searchableCylinder;
point1 (0 0 10);
point2 (0 0 20);
radius 10;

Using this as a refinement surface and obtaining the cells inside as a MRF cellZone.

2D mesh using snappyHexMesh

Posted November 11, 2010 at 09:01 by amgode

Compiled from forum !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To generate a 2D mesh using snappyHexMesh: Its an indirect way but at times can be helpful. The following steps need to be considered:

1. Generate the snappyHexMesh with empty patches but with more than one cell between them.

2. Using the above mesh as a source extrude one of the empty patch in the normal direction with a single cell. This would result in a mesh with only two or three patches.

3. Using the autoPatch...

GeoPDES: Software for Isogeometric Analysis

Isogeometric Analysis is a relatively new approach proposed by T. J. R. Hughes and his group to combine CAD and finite element analysis. The basic idea is to use the same (finite) representations for the geometry and FEM solution space, mostly based on B-splines and NURBS. The major advantage is the exact representation of geometry in computer aided design and analysis. An excellent introduction is given in the book

how to combine dieselFoam and nonNewtonianIcoFoam for spray dryer simulation

Posted November 8, 2010 at 01:52 by troosta

Dear all,
I try to combine tow solvers of OPENFOAM, dieselFoam and nonNewtonianIcoFoam slover for a spray dryer simulation. I need a algorithm to do it. I asked this question from Dr. Ville Anton Vuorinen, and send me this answer:"
In one conversation Niklas Nordin explains how the lagrangian classes match
with other solvers.
Basically the actual steps to create the solver were really easy.
Just including some .H files and adding a spray source term....

OpenFOAM for education

Posted October 29, 2010 at 06:30 by maysmech

There is the idea of a special interest group teaching
But I think Professor Janoske has moved from Mosbach to another "bigger" University in Germany.
But there are allready examples of lectures with OpenFoam
