Hello folks,

I wonder if anyone can give me some help converting a Salome mesh to Fluent format. I tried doing it using Gmsh, it apparently does the job (unv to msh) but it seems that the group labels are not being saved.

I will appreciate if anyone can provide guidance on this,

Best regards

Hi,

I have tried with 3D mesh. First export "a.unv" mesh file from Salome. Then use "ideasUnvToFoam.exe a.unv" in OpenFOAM. It will convert unv mesh file to OpenFOAM mesh with all boundary group as patches.

After converting mesh and checking quality of mesh use "foamMeshToFluent.exe" command to convert it into .msh format with all boundary patches.

It will work.

But I am stuck up with how to export 2D Mesh from Salome to Fluent because OpenFOAM is not dealing with 2D mesh.

Fluent can read the I-deas universal format.

Thank you Evren Linda.

I use to work with OpenFoam and I rarely find some stuff which requires fluent mesh conversion. I followed the above (wrong) practice of multiple conversion which was actually not required for converting Salome mesh to fluent.

But you are right. We can directly read ".unv" file into fluent.
