I'm trying to get foam mesh converted to fluent with
foamMeshToFluent

I'm not sure how to get this correct ... my fluent mesh is missing all the cellZone information. So I dont have any additional fluid/porous zones in the mesh converted in fluent format ..

Any help appreciated .. thanks

Thanks, it's 3d mesh. I was able to get them after splitting the mesh based on cellzones. Let me also know if there are quick and better way of doing ....

Code:
fluentMeshToFoam myMesh.msh -writeSets -writeZones -scale 0.001
also works most of the time for me (for a mesh called myMesh.msh in mm).

Cheers, Gijs

Thanks , Thats helpful...

But In my case I would like to convert SnappyHexMesh "FOAM Mesh" to fluent format while keeping all cellZone as separate fluid zones in fluent...


I guess for this matter I cant do

foamMeshToFluent -time 4 -writeSets -writeZones


But otherwise if you would like to convert fluent mesh to foam the command suggested by Wierink works without a problem ...

Hi,

as I see, the problem of exporting the correct region names from a foamMesh to fluentMesh is still present in foamMeshToFluent command. The whole domain is exported, all the regions, but without any distinctive label, merged under the same placeholder / default region name.

How can one overcome this limitation?

How does the splitting method works that is mentioned earlier? I came up with this one:
Code:
splitMeshRegions -cellZonesOnly -makeCellZones -overwrite
I can make cellSets based on the regions, but it wont help foamMeshToFluent and I cannot see any special flag for the command.

Hi Tibor:

Are you now able to solve this limitation for foamMeshtoFluent?
