Files Preparation - Solid Region
For creating new mesh with snappyHexMesh it is recommended to create a new OpenFOAM case just with system and constant directory and with empty directory 0. Go to your user directory and create directories for turbine solid part.
mkdir -p turbomachinery-CFD/meshFactory/t1/solid
cp -r $WM_PROJECT_INST_DIR/Turbomachinery-CFD-XX.XX/
The input .STL files are located in constant/triSurface and can be directly viewed in paraview.
Notice again that the model dimensions are in millimeters, not yet converted to meters. The initial idea is to have following stator mesh boundaries, namely rotor_inner_wall, stator_inner_wall, outer_wall.
