Hello everyone,

for simulating a steelstrip inside a zinc bath I need to link two different meshes for the chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam solver. The zinc bath is meshed with snappyHexMesh, in which some geometries are cut out because just their faces are needed for velocity. The steel strip is separately meshed with a blockMeshDict. The region is called "Band" while the region for the zinc bath in sHM is simply called "Zink". Now I need to link both meshes to imply some boundary conditions. I know that I need to create a mappedWall condition but I have no idea where I can do this and how it exactly has to look like. Furthermore I don`t know how to set up the correct structure of the case since I have two separat meshes. The tutorials don`t help much since they only use one mesh which is separated. Maybe someone can give me some advice. Thanks to all who made the effort to read this
