Water Pump - Files Preparation - Rotor Region

For creating new mesh with snappyHexMesh it is recommended to create new OpenFOAM test case just with system and constant directory. Go to your user directory and create directories for rotor region mesh. It is recommended to copy a similar tutorial case and modify just the different parts of the case.

The input .STL files are located in constant/triSurface and can be directly viewed in paraview.

# paraview
Seven .STL files are presented, namely:

  • pump_impeller_outlet.stl
  • pump_impeller_shroud.stl
  • pump_inlet_pipe.stl
  • pump_rs_connection.stl
  • pump_impeller_blades.stl
  • pump_impeller_hub.stl
  • pump_spiral.stl

Interface between rotor and stator part is defined by imposed cylinder pump_impeller_outlet.stl file.
