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

chegdan will become famous soon enough
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
