I am attempting to model the conjugate heat transfer of water flowing through a steel pipe using the chtMultiRegionFoam solver. I successfully ran the chtMultiRegionFoam tutorial, so I have a relatively good grasp on the solver; however, I am having issues with the makeCellSets.setSet file that accompanies the solver.
From what I understand, makeCellSets creates rectangular-prism regions in the mesh using the boxToCell command. For my problem, I need a cylindrical region through the center of the mesh for the water to flow through.
Is there a command other than boxToCell that will allow me to create this cylindrical region in makeCellSets? If not, is there a way other than makeCellSets to create regions in a mesh that will work with the chtMultiRegionFoam solver?
Here is my simple code for the makeCellSets.setSet file:
Try using the surfaceToCell. Further instructions can be found in the cellSetDict file under applications/utilities/mesh/manipulations/
Thank you for your reply.
I used the cylinderToCell command in cellSetDict and it solved my problem!
