Hello Foamers,

I have a 2D overset mesh case. I unfortunately don't have much experience. I've created the background mesh (single block) and overset mesh (two blocks) with blockMesh. However overset mesh is not complete yet, since i can't figure out how to add just a surface which is not inside of the overset mesh (please just look at the two screen shots in the attachment). The blue surfaces in the picture i want to add into my system.

Do you guys have any idea & suggestion, how to do that at best? These walls should also move with the overset mesh later in the simulation. That's why i don't define them in my background mesh.

Thanks for your help
