Hi to everyone.
I would like to create the 3D model of an HAWT blade and then generate a 3D mesh for a further simulation in OpenFOAM.
The 3D mesh is composed by a boundary layer(from a surface quad structured mesh), and an external zone of tetra elements.
I was exploring Salome in order to create the 3D model, but then? What is the most suitable meshing tool to do a 3D structured-non structured mesh for openFOAM?
