I just imported a mesh from fluent and now I need to set the different patches representing outlet, inlet and walls in the boundary file of me openfoam case. How do I get the number of faces nface and startFace number that I need from imported mesh? Can I see each face number in para view? I other words, how do I set the boundary conditions from an imported mesh? I will appreciate any help. Thanks

check the file: constant/polyMesh/boundary

this will give you the names for the boundaries.
