convert to foam a mesh with 3 zones made with gambit
 
Hi there,
I have a simple problem, I have generated the mesh using gambit,
I followed the steps to convert the mesh is:
1) fluent3DMeshToFoam
2) createPatch for my cyclic boundary

I am able to see the mesh in paraView.

Now I want to use MRFSimpleFoam.
for my sample case I used blockMesh, there I dindt get any problem to run MRFSimpleFoam, because blockMesh creates cellSet cellZone and all the necessary files.

my questions are:

1) Do we need to define the regions in the gambit itself?
or can we create the cellSet and cellZone using some other option?

2) If it is possible to use some other option, what are the option?
can you guys please explain, what are the steps I need to do to make my case to run?

thanks,
Sivakumar

convert to foam a mesh with 3 zones made with gambit
 
Hi There,

I am looking for your help to solve the problem.

I have the following problem,


I have a simple problem, I have generated the mesh using gambit, it has 3 volume. (1 st volume with Inlet, 2 volume fan, 3rd volume with outlet).

I followed the steps to convert the mesh is:
1) fluent3DMeshToFoam
2) createPatch for my cyclic boundary

I am able to see the mesh in paraView.

Now I want to use MRFSimpleFoam.


my questions are:

It seems that I need to execute "topoSet"
I am trying to edit "topoSetDict" but I am totally confused.

please can you guys explain a bit about the topoSetDict.

My boundary file looks like;

12
(
fan
{
type wall;
nFaces 2800;
startFace 1357300;
}
top2
{
type wall;
nFaces 5600;
startFace 1360100;
}
top1
{
type wall;
nFaces 800;
startFace 1365700;
}
top0
{
type wall;
nFaces 2800;
startFace 1366500;
}
center1
{
type wall;
nFaces 5600;
startFace 1369300;
}
center0
{
type wall;
nFaces 2800;
startFace 1374900;
}
outlet
{
type patch;
nFaces 2000;
startFace 1377700;
}
inlet
{
type patch;
nFaces 2000;
startFace 1379700;
}
ILR0
{
type cyclic;
nFaces 3500;
startFace 1381700;
matchTolerance 0.001;
neighbourPatch ILR1;
transform rotational;
rotationAxis (1 0 0);
rotationCentre (0 0 0);
}
ILR1
{
type cyclic;
nFaces 3500;
startFace 1385200;
matchTolerance 0.001;
neighbourPatch ILR0;
transform rotational;
rotationAxis (1 0 0);
rotationCentre (0 0 0);
}
OLR0
{
type cyclic;
nFaces 7000;
startFace 1388700;
matchTolerance 0.001;
neighbourPatch OLR1;
transform rotational;
rotationAxis (1 0 0);
rotationCentre (0 0 0);
}
OLR1
{
type cyclic;
nFaces 7000;
startFace 1395700;
matchTolerance 0.001;
neighbourPatch OLR0;
transform rotational;
rotationAxis (1 0 0);
rotationCentre (0 0 0);
}
)

what are the steps I need to do to make my case to run?


Thanks,
Sivakumar

Greetings Sivakumar,

Please do not repeat your questions on multiple threads. Doing so will in fact reduce the chances of getting an answer.
I've removed duplicate posts of these ones and moved your questions to a new thread and onto the proper sub-forum.

About your questions, I believe you will find the answer here: http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...tml#post366929 post #20. You might want to read the whole thread, because there is a lot of valuable information there.

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Bruno,
Thanks for your reply and apologies for the multiple thread post.
The reason is, not only one thread is related to my problem, users are discussed similar kind of problems in many threads.
So, I was thinking that If I post my question in one thread other people many not be able to receive the email intimation that is why I posted my question where ever I see the related issue ( I am really sorry for this, I will not repeat it).

Thanks,
Sivakumar

Hi Sivakumar,

When there is more than one thread, then the usual suggestion is that a person chooses the most recent thread. Because the other ones may be so old, that the people notified on that thread might no even remember what happened months ago! ;)

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Bruno,
thanks for your suggestion, I will follow it.

thanks,
Sivakumar
