Hi Foamers,

I'm going to do a simulation of a fan, what means 2 stationary and a rotating domain between them. I will create the mesh in ICEM cfd, and then convert it to OF, but what I'm interested in is that the tricks and methods in order to make the mesh work in OF. For example I think of the special meshing of the interfaces (do I need duplicate surfaces there or only one) and so on.

Every suggestion is very welcome in this topic, I hope it would be helpful for the others too.

CFD= Cleverly Formatted Data
