importing openFoam case
whenever I try to import an openFoam case in engrid, I always get an empty box. In all these cases I have already produced the 3d mesh with snappyHexmesh utility. but I can not see it. actually what I see is the outline of the background mesh. can you help me with this problem.
Thanks in advance
I know I've seen an answer on the old forum about this... OK, from memory:
PS: I've moved your post to a new thread, since the other one was already a bit old and not completely related ;).
it worked pretty well :)...the only problem is that I can not select the walls separately in order to define the boundary conditions as I could do with the throttle example. can you also help me with this part .
Besides as I am absolutely new in this field I guess thats a good idea if you take a look at this geometry and tell me what you think in general. for example Is it basically possible to simulate it in OpenFoam with snappyHexMesh?
the STL file is attached to this mail.
OK, this STL is too damaged for it to work directly in enGrid. You'll need to clean it up first, by removing the unnecessary triangles from it. You can use either Blender or Meshlab to clean up the geometry.
snappyHexMesh might be able to handle this STL as it is, but I have not checked this for myself. You can find a lot of information on how to use snappyHexMesh here: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/SnappyHexMesh
As for defining the boundary conditions in enGrid, using a mesh from OpenFOAM: I believe you can do this, as long as you've use the "-overwrite" option in sHM.
For more information on how to use enGrid, read and do all of the tutorials from here: https://github.com/enGits/engrid/wiki/Tutorials
