Guided video tutorial
For this tutorial the following material will be provided:
|mesh||you will create the mesh yourself|
|simulation case||optionally you can run any simulation as a homework|
- Here you can download the geometry files.
In this tutorial you will learn how you create a mesh with cfMesh using a certain set of STL files.
Commands to be executed:
Check out the User Guide (see details in the video) for advanced meshing settings.
In this tutorial we will take a look at the settings for the basic mesh resolution as well as local refinement along STL files. We will also add layers to our mesh.
This tutorial assumes basic knowledge in the handling of both OpenFOAM and Linux. A working installation of the versions indicated above is needed. A working version of Paraview is required.
cfMesh is only available for OpenFOAM versions from www.openfoam.com out-of-the-box, not for www.openfoam.org. For the second you have to compile it yourself!
