Hi Andrew,

I am preparing an abstract on high quality grid generation for OpenFOAM.
Should I send it to you or somebody else?

Hello All,
Just I am trying to work with OpenFoam and appears problem with internal wall.
I used Centaur export mesh to fluent cas and convert this mesh in to OpenFOAM.
Unfortunately , I lost a info subject internal wall.
I believe that is some method for create a mesh included internal wall for OpenFOAM.
I open for any suggestion, what kind of free tools should I use for proper mesh generating.

I would like to setup a pressure wall drop on this internal wall

before conversion into OpenFOAM

| ~~~~~~~~:~~~~~~~ |
| inlet ~~~~ :~~~~~~~ | outlet
|~~~~~~~ ~:~~~~~~~ |

: -- internal wall

after conversion
| ~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~|
| inlet ~~~~ ~~~~~~~ | outlet
|~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~ |

P.S. I am a fresh OpenFOAM user and I am open for cooperation with OpenFOAM expert.

Thanks and regards,

Do a search for threads about baffles, internal/zero thickness walls, and the createBaffles and mergeOrSplitBaffles utilities. That should give you a good start.

In a nutshell, you'll need to select the faces that used to be part of the internal wall and turn them into baffles.

On a side note, please include screenshots or sketches in the future; the ASCII drawing you made is very difficult to see what you want, and the formatting on different browsers can cause it to appear distorted/different than you want.
