Defining Solid and Fluid zones in OpenFoam
Hi All,
I am solving conjugate heat transfer problem in which there are two zones i.e fluid and solid. Can anyone please tell me how I can separate the two zones in PolyMesh folder? Is there any other way of doing it. I am using the mesh which is generated in ICEM. I have successfully imported the mesh in foam.

Somebody correct me If I am wrong--

If you have successfully imported mesh from ICEM. It should create cellZones and faceZones in constant/polyMesh directory (fluen3DMeshToFoam will do the job).

After that using splitMeshRegions -cellZones to create seperate regions. After this 0.001 directory will be created in which two directory corresponding to each fluid zone will be there.

For more information, check chtMultiRegionFoam directory.
