This thread is set up to facilitate discussions regarding possible Francis-99 activities at the 12th OpenFOAM Workshop in Exeter, 2017 (

Find the official information about Francis-99 at: It should in particular be noted that there are meshes for OpenFOAM, and some OpenFOAM case set-ups available since the second workshop, see the mesh download link at The presently suggested activities are endorsed by the Francis-99 organizers. The purpose is to be complementary to the original Francis-99 workshop, with a special focus on OpenFOAM. Those who are interested in the Francis-99 validation case are of course encouraged to attend the upcoming Francis-99 workshop(s).

Those who are interested are encouraged to fill in the form at

On this post you may find an unstructured type of mesh of the complete Francis-99 geometry generated from ANSA pre-processor that can be used for the OpenFOAM simulations.
Mesh consists of around 26 million solids and boundary layers are also generated in the domain. All Geometrical and Mesh checks are fulfilled.

The Volume is split in two solids, one which will be rotated and the second one which will be stationary.

In the provided link the complete OpenFOAM case is uploaded. Only the boundary condition types have been applied on the shell boundaries, not the actual values for U,p,k, etc.

Thus, user can modify the case according to his needs by changing the 0 or system folder.

If you have any questions regarding the mesh, do not hesitate to ask!
