Fluent Mesh for the CHT Solver
Fluent Mesh Converting including different cellZones
OpenFOAM® has a wide range of mesh conversion applications, that allows one to easily convert other mesh types into an OpenFOAM® readable format. This training case shows the usage of the fluent mesh converter named fluentMeshToFoam. It is worth to mention, that the cell zones created in Fluent are kept in OpenFOAM®.
The following training case converts a fluent mesh into an OpenFOAM mesh. The fluent mesh includes two zones: a) the fluid region and b) the solid region. During the conversion, cellSets are generated which are used afterward to build OpenFOAM cellZones. These zones are further used to split the mesh into two different regions which can be used for, e.g., the conjugate heat transfer solver.
