I want to do a scour analysis in a serpentine channel. I was just wondering how can I set up the mesh domain around the structure.
Attaching a picture of the serpentine channel. Any lead will be appreciated.

Hi Nawnit,

You can use conforming mesh to built specific mesh shape.

Hi. Well as the mesh in Flow 3D is Orthogonal, so when you prepare 3D of channel geometry, you might prepare a solid square sheet around your channel (see below picture of siphon & channel flowing together). The water shall only flow through the channel path and rest of the geometry will act as solid barrier.
