Hi there,
I am not new to openFOAM, but I used OF 3 years ago, now I am doing a project in OF.
my question is very simple.
I have created mesh in fluent (.msh), now I need to convert in to OF.
my question is,
1) what are the folders and files should be in my case folder?

I have done something as follows,
* created case folder called Test
* copied 0 constant and system folders in to my case folder
* copied my .msh file in to Test/constant/polyMesh$
* I tried Test/constant/polyMesh$ fluentMeshToFoam fluent.msh
I am getting fatal error

can any one help me to over come this issue
please give me the steps, which i should follow

thanks,

p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; }

Greetings sivakumar,

When in doubt:
  1. Check tutorials that OpenFOAM has:
    Code:
    find $FOAM_TUTORIALS -name "*.msh"
  2. Or ask help directly :
    Code:
    fluentMeshToFoam -help

In your case:
  1. cd to Test
  2. Code:
    fluentMeshToFoam constant/polyMesh/fluent.msh
In some cases, use fluent3DMeshToFoam instead.


Best regards,
Bruno
