The importance of a good mesh

Posted July 3, 2022 at 03:22 by Vinzmann

Recently I've been running a simulation of a Ranque Hilsch Vortex Tube in OpenFOAM. This went well for a time but when I tried refining and implementing a new mesh, it all came crashing down, showing negative total temperatures with gradients of more than 600 K for neighbouring cells. Since my experience with OpenFOAM is still rather limited, I tried with refining every surface up to a ridiculously high degree.

Meshing with Solome for OpenFOAM

It is very easy tool to create geometries, in my case first try was continuous casting mold with a submerged entry nozzle.

Meshing order

  1. Mesh the edges, especially feature edges
  2. Mesh faces with the transition from smaller elements near the features to bigger ones away from them (where it is actually needed)
  3. Mesh the rest of the volume mesh
