Hi, everyone.

I had to convert a gambit-mesh to FoamX.

The Question is : what does it mean "startFace"
and "nFaces" ?

Hi Paul,
"starFace" is the first face of your boundary condition and "nFaces" is the number of faces
of the same boundary contidion. You can read them in the file "faces".

Hi Paul

I use this procedure in gambit:
- create mesh
- change solver to "generic"
- create patches with differents name (wall, inlet, ...) and the same type: "ELEMENT_SIDE"
- use gambitToMesh to convert mesh
- In FoamX define the patch types
