foam Mesh to Fluent
 
I'm trying to get foam mesh converted to fluent with
foamMeshToFluent

I'm not sure how to get this correct ... my fluent mesh is missing all the cellZone information. So I dont have any additional fluid/porous zones in the mesh converted in fluent format ..

Any help appreciated .. thanks

Hi tachyon_me,

let me know ! It is 2D or 3D?

Thanks, it's 3d mesh. I was able to get them after splitting the mesh based on cellzones. Let me also know if there are quick and better way of doing ....

Code:

fluentMeshToFoam myMesh.msh -writeSets -writeZones -scale 0.001
also works most of the time for me (for a mesh called myMesh.msh in mm).

Cheers, Gijs

Thanks , Thats helpful...

But In my case I would like to convert SnappyHexMesh "FOAM Mesh" to fluent format while keeping all cellZone as separate fluid zones in fluent...


I guess for this matter I cant do

foamMeshToFluent -time 4 -writeSets -writeZones


But otherwise if you would like to convert fluent mesh to foam the command suggested by Wierink works without a problem ...

Hi,

as I see, the problem of exporting the correct region names from a foamMesh to fluentMesh is still present in foamMeshToFluent command. The whole domain is exported, all the regions, but without any distinctive label, merged under the same placeholder / default region name.

How can one overcome this limitation?

How does the splitting method works that is mentioned earlier? I came up with this one:
Code:

splitMeshRegions -cellZonesOnly -makeCellZones -overwrite
I can make cellSets based on the regions, but it wont help foamMeshToFluent and I cannot see any special flag for the command.

Hi Tibor:

Are you now able to solve this limitation for foamMeshtoFluent?
