Hi All,
I am new to the OpenFoam code.
My question is very simple : I want to simulate a flow around a circle (with no symmetry applied). In attach I am reproducing the domain.
How to define such domain in blockMeshDict ?
Any comment is very welcome.

To give you a basic idea of how this can be done have a look into the User Guide's tutorial:

But this can be done easier than in the tutorial (but maybe with lesser mesh quality), but I don't have the time to show you, right now.
I will get back to you after the weekend, or someone else will tell you in the meantime.
