Hi,

I have recently trying to convert Gmsh mesh to OpenFoam with relatively good success so far.

I recently try using the simpleFoam solver (turbulence) and run into the following problem:

The boundaries defined in Gmsh are converted to Patch in openFoam. Although it is good for inlet/outlet, wall with wall function require the type to be set to Wall.

Is there a way (other than manually editing the constant/Boundary file) to convert Patch into Wall (or get gmshToFoam to do it)?

Thanks in advance
Julien
