Hi

I know that snappyHexmesh can be used to mesh an external flow domain, my question is wether it can also be used to mesh an internal flow domain...

for instance an stl triangulated surface format representing the flow domain...

Can snappyHexMesh create such a mesh..?

BR

Alex

Greetings Alex,

One word: "locationInMesh"

Trouble understanding what it does or how it works? There is plenty of reference material here: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/SnappyHexMesh

Have fun!
