Files Preparation - Solid Region

For creating new mesh with snappyHexMesh it is recommended to create new OpenFOAM test case just with system and constant directory and with empty directory 0. Go to your user directory and create directories for the solid region.

1 3 mkdir -p turbomachinery-CFD/meshFactory/as1/solid
1 3 cd turbomachinery-CFD/meshFactory/as1/solid
1 3 cp -r $WM_PROJECT_INST_DIR/Turbomachinery-CFD-XX.XX/
/tutorials/meshFactory/as1/solid/*     ./

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

The only file to be used is rotor_blade. The blade is simply cut by background mesh created by blockMesh. The initial idea is to have three patches: solid_hubsolid_shroud and solid_rotor_blade.
