polyDualMesh, create a tetrahedral mesh from a polyhedral mesh
I am using polyDualMesh and finally I get a polyhedral Mesh, but I need a tetrahedral Mesh.
Is there a posibility in OpenFoam
to create a tetrahedral Mesh by using polyDualMesh
is there a way to create a tetrahedral Mesh from a polyhedral Mesh?
Thanks for any hint,
You can't create a tetrahedral Mesh from a polyhedral Mesh, since it does exactly the opposite. And if you run polyDualMesh twice, you get the dual of the polymesh, which is again a polyhedral mesh.
If you want a thetrahedral mesh, look at netgen (with salome) / gmsh / engrid /...
thanks for your quick answer, but I don't agree, that it is not possible to create a tetrahedral grid from a polyhedral grid.
It is always possible to split a polyhedron into a set of tetrahedrons.
(The reason why I'm using polyDualMesh is because the cell centres should become my new grid points for some reason.)
I have found in openfoam-1.6-ext the application "tetDecomposition", but this application adds additional points.
did you find a way to convert your polyhedral mesh into a tetrahedral mesh? Please let me know :)
Greetings to all!
@Hanzo - I think the solution he probably used was this:
The need for adding new points should be rather simple: without new points, the boundaries are not preserved, if the cell centers are used as vertexes for the tetrahedral mesh.
