OpenFoam and S-P?

I haven’t been here in a while, and this is the first visit to the “new” website. I liked the density of the old one, but, hey! I’m old fashioned. Is anyone routinely meshing with unstruct tets and importing into Openfoam?

Thanks!

if you want to search for old posts in any case, you can acces (partially as the user data was half erased) here: Forum — SALOME Platform

I do unstructured in 2D only (to use in snappy) but it is the same for the 3D. for 2D you can even create the geometry subdictionary automatically. for 3D with tets, i would highly recommend the following items:

That’s correct. Pyramid cells fail to export, when using the native export routine for the UNV format. Furthermore, I also found that I have to delete edge groups, since they crash the ideasUnvToFoam converter.

The salomeToOpenFOAM script works like a charm.

Thank you both for the information! So far I have only worked with blockmesh, which seems problematic. So I have a lot to learn, I have made complex tet meshes in Salome. IIRC, one must be careful with quality of the output mesh. I am a little confused, though, aren’t all tetrahedra “pyramids” with varying skewness? (…here showing my lack of knowledge of gridding tech)

polyhedra do look good… (I’ll have to look, but I assume Salome supports well?)
