Hi there,

I have a .msh file I created using gmsh 2.4.

I can not convert it in a format readable with OpenFOAM. Could you help me? How can I do that?

Thanks a lot,

samuele

Of course I do...

But I think I need the gmsh2ToFoam... But you have to compile it and it is pretty a problem.

Do you know any other way-out?

do you put the face names and so on in the .msh by your self?! i had the same probleme but i found a way by typing the face names by my self in the .msh data

and after that i had but the .msh data in the case directory (the constant --> polymesh directory is without nothig) then i have typ gmshToFoam and it works pretty good

but i have to say that the msh qualtiy is not so good for Openfoam so he have to itterate alot

and some time he stops bcz of the courant number

Ok, thanks for help.

Could you write me an email (@ samuele.zampini@gmail.com ) so that I can send you the file and - if you feel like - you can help me in editing it?

Thanks a lot,

Samuele
