OpenFOAM mesh in Helyx-OS
 
Hi
I am looking to use an OpenFOAM mesh in Helyx-OS.
Is it possible to work with an existing OpenFOAM mesh in Helyx-OS?

And if is true, how can I import the mesh.

So far I know, It may be possible if I change the mesh file from the case directory. But I don't know how or which files to substitute

In the near future you should be able to import meshes from other cases directly, but until the release you can
  1. create a new case using HELYX-OS
  2. copy the entire polyMesh directory form an existing OpenFOAM mesh to this new case
  3. Reload the new case in HELYX-OS and start setting things up

If you want to import a mesh from say FLUENT, its very similar
  1. create a new case using HELYX-OS
  2. through the command line, navigate to your new case directory and import the mesh withe the appropriate command e.g. fluentMeshToFoam car.msh .
  3. Reload the new case in HELYX-OS and start setting things up
