Importing mesh from Ideas
 
Hi,

I am a new user of Open Foam and have a basic question.

I use ideasUnvToFoam to import a mesh from Ideas, the mesh is imorted ok but what is the best procedure to set up boundary patches? In open foam i only have a one boundary which is all boundaryfaces.

As I remember using this, best is to define named patches already in the software geometry, where you made the grid.

Hi,

i use ICEM to generate meshes. There you have to specify for every part the type of physical meaning (wall, inlet etc). These boundarys will be part of boundary file in constant/polyMesh. I think something similar your have to do in your case.

I think in OpenFOAM there is an AutoPatch tool.
