Default PLOT3D to FOAM Boundary Definiton

Julian K. is on a distinguished road

I have the following problem: I have a mesh written in PLOT3D file format. I successfully converted this file into an OpenFOAM mesh by using the utility 'plot3dToFoam'.

However, all sides of the domain were summarized to one boundary of type 'wall', called 'defaultFaces'.

Thus, my questions is: how can I define the sides of the domain individually? I'd like to have one inlet and one outlet. Is that possible after I have converted the mesh to OpenFOAM?

Thanks for reading this thread!
