Files Preparation - Draft Tube Region
For creating new mesh with snappyHexMesh it is recommended to create new OpenFOAM test case just with system and constant directory.
The input .STL files are located in constant/triSurface and can be directly viewed in paraview:
Four .STL files are presented, namely align-rot-draft.stl, hub-rot.stl, outflow-drafttube.stl, outflow-outlet.stl,
Interface between draft tube and rotor part (align-rot-draft.stl) is the same as for rotor region (see Section , page ).
The initial idea is to create following mesh boundaries: draft tube walls, outlet and interface. Their number and names may change during the creation process.
