I'm a newbie in Foam.
We have to compute the flow into a valve.
The valve model comes from a CAD and then it is imported into Salome to be meshed.
Is there any tutorial in how to do it the correct way ?
I just introduced a box around the valve and tried to partition it but then I don't know how (and if it is right) to group boundary faces.

Thanks for any hint.
