Hello all, I just wanted to run a multi-region case, with one region with laminar flow and another with turbulent.

I have absolutely no idea how these cases work, they are totally different from the incompressible and compressible ones in OpenFoam.

If someone could give me some hints or even better a tutorial or link with detailed information regarding these type of cases I would be grateful.

Best Regards

Dear Rui
I think you can do this with the cht-solvers if your fluid regions are separated for example by a wall (solid region). You can take a look at the tutorials in heatTransfer/cht*. In the constant-dir you will find sub-Dirs with the turbulence models etc.

Best regards
