Hi everybody!
I have just joined the Forum. Trying to determine the flow pattern in the forebay and sump including column pipes of several vertical turbine pumps separated from each other by piers. Would be grateful for advice on the best way to generate the mesh. Domain plan and elevation attached.

Hi Rama,
I think it's possible to generate this mesh in two steps. First you create a mesh inside the forebay using blockMesh, and then you include the pipes and the pier using snappyHexMesh.
Best Regards,
Paulo
