Hi all,

Does anyone know if any of the OpenFOAM solvers can use/read a mesh composed of second-order tetrahedrons?

Short answer: I think not.
Little longer: higher order cell shapes apply to finite element methods, whereas OpenFOAM is based on finite volume methods.

I hope this is useful...and right,
Dragos
