Hello All

I'm a rookie in unsing OpenFOAM.

At the time I'm trying to mesh a branch (s. attachement) with hex mesh. In OF users guide i found the snappyHexMesh utility. But there are no instructions how i could use this utility for an interior mesh. And a look into www brought no useful results .
Has anybody an idea how to mesh this geometry with snappHexMesh?

Thanks for your help.

elvis will become famous soon enough
you can specify which side gets meshed by "point position" (locationInMesh point)
for example snappy hex meshing a car
=> locationInMesh point outside car =>windtunnel meshing
=> locationInMesh point inside car => climate/HVAC meshing

there are many many posts in this forum if you search for "location in mesh"
