I'm required to model a horizontal cylindrical floating object. Can somebody please tell me what all changes are required to be made in toposetdict and blockmeshdict from the floating object tutorial in Openfoam. I realised that 'source cylindertocell' in toposetdit won't work as the mesh is made of only cuboidal cells.

You might be better of generating your domain with an external mesh generation. Sometimes it can be a little easier while typically harder to automate than blockmesh.
