Hello everyone,

I'd like to know if the initial and boundary conditions, the turbulence model, solution methods and controls are stored in the .cas file under fluent.

In other words, if I set all those parameters and save them in a .cas file using fluent (ascii mode), and then convert the .cas file using fluent3DMeshToFoam tool, do I have to reset those parameters with openFoam, or the converter does it automatically ?

Thank you in advance !

Hi,

fluent3DMeshToFoam and fluentMeshToFoam only convert the fluent mesh (including boundary names) to an OpenFOAM mesh.

The initial conditions, boundary conditions, turbulance model, solution methods, etc must be set in OpenFOAM and will not be transferred from the fluent file.
