rhtbapat is on a distinguished road

I was wondering if there is some data available for OpenFoam adaptive mesh (snappyhexmesh) generation performance in terms of time taken (on single/multi processor) for large models ! I searched on internet but couldn't find any useful data.

It will be very helpful if there is any study previously done on this topic. Does anyone has this kind of information ?


No of cells | #processors | Time taken
| | With snap Without snap

Thank you
