Hi,

I'm wondering if it is possible to use a hexcore mesh in OpenFOAM. In the past I generated some hexcore meshes in TGRID and ran the calculations in FLUENT.
Is it possible to take those meshes and convert them via fluent3dToFoam to a FOAM valid grid?

Or will OpenFOAM change the hexahedrons into tetrahedrons?

Does anybody have experience? I appreciate any help.

In general, yes. However, conversation makes rarely troubles and interfaces in you mesh may make thinks complicate...

No
