I am a new user of OpenFoam.

I created an object with Autocad, exported this to an stl file and use it as my snappyhexmesh object. this is three pipes connected.

I want to insert a box of water inside the snappyhexmesh object and simulate something like a dambreak but I cannot find a way.

Do you know how can I do this?

Thank you very much

Though probably you already found another solution for the problem:

I think this is not any more a problem to be dealt with using snappyHexMesh. What you probably want to use is the setFields-function. With that you can define an initial zone with alpha = 1.0. I guess it would be explained within the damBreak tutorial. What you need to write on your own is a setFieldsDict-file...
