issue 1_running several mesh configurations for a cavity model (tutorial)
Dear OpenFoam Users,

this is my debut in this Forum along.

I have run some however, I am interessed in doing some variations in statial step size of structured mesh ans study how does that compare with a spectral methodology.

I would like to run several mesh cases and collect results for specific points in the simulation. Afterwards, I would process then for error estimation.

I request help to explain me how could this be done and it is something that a very recent user of OpenFoam could aim to. If not, I would run the blockmesh manually and collect the data in a primitive fashion.

I am a complete beginner in OpenFoam.

Greetings Luis and welcome to the forum!

I'll have to be quick to answer - Google this:

Good luck! Best regards,

I have solved this issue manually but this function is indeed useful.
