Hello everyone,

I have a "stupid" question but I can't find an answer. I have imported in OpenFOAM a mesh created in Fluent, using the command fluent3DMeshToFoam.
Everything is ok, I just want to know the orientation of the axes. In Fluent the domain is symmetric in Y direction, and the fluid flows in -Y direction. Is this still true for OpenFOAM? What I mean is, when I have to set boundary conditions for the velocity, have I to impose the inlet velocity in -Y direction?
With the command checkMesh I didn't find anything useful...

Thank you in advance,
Davide

You should be able to view the mesh if you run paraView in the case folder once the conversion is done. The OpenFOAM mesh should have the same coordinates as the Fluent mesh.
