Hello all,

I am a new user of OpenFoam. I am practicing with OpenFOAM V 2.4 . When am trying to convert a STAR CCM Mesh to FOAM Mesh using the following command:

# $ ccm26ToFoam mesh_name.ccm

i am getting the following error saying command not found.


is this command not supported on Foam 2.4 ?

Replies/suggestions appreciated

As far I know ccm26ToFoam depends on ibccmio which is properitary and it's not build by default. You should compile ibccmio and ccm26ToFoam.
This information can be found in readme file for ThirdPart packages

hello all,

I have one question, is there any way to mapFields from star-ccm to OpenFOAM, something like fluentDataToFoam? (i.e., converting the star-ccm data to OpenFOAM readable data first)

I have some simulation results in star-ccm, which I want to use as my initial condition in OpenFOAM. It would really save me a lot of time, if I avoid re-simulating those cases again in OpenFOAM.

Any help is really appreciated.

Regards,
Ricky
