Hallo,


I got a fluent case file with a polyhedral mesh and two cellzones is there any possibility to convert this to OpenFoam?


I tried fluentMeshToFoam and got this:


Code:
..
  Found end of section in unknown:)
 Number of cells: 3567963
 number of faces: 18573112
 Number of points: 14183558

     From function fluentMeshToFoam::lexer
     in file fluent3DMeshToFoam.L at line 746.
 

 FOAM exiting
I can convert the Mesh file with fluent3DMeshToFoam, but this is tet/hex and not polyhedral and checkMesh look like this:


Code:
Create time
 

 Create polyMesh for time = 0
 

 Time = 0
 

 Mesh stats
     points:           1786133
 checkMesh: malloc.c:3546: munmap_chunk: Assertion `ret == 0' failed.
If I use fluentMeshToFoam on the mesh file i got this error:


Code:
..

Has anyone an Idea?

Hi Christoph,

Have you converted your mesh to ascii?

Regards,

Josh
