README for IWESOL - IWES Open Library Copyright Fraunhofer IWES, Oldenburg, Germany Date: 15 Feb 2014, author: Jonas Schmidt --------------------------------------------------- IWESOL contains libraries and tools for C++ and OpenFOAM. In the version available here it contains: 1) The application 'terrainBlockMesher' This tool for OpenFOAM generates structured meshes over complex terrain. The latter has to be provided in form of a STL data file. It features - the basic mesh generation (ie, the generation of an extensive blockMeshDict file), - the creation of an outer box around the STL, - the creation of a cylinder around the STL, with an arbitrary number of sector patches, - the possibility to add symmetric and oval hills to the orography, MISSING: - the option to make the mesh cyclic, - the addition of grading stripes in (x,y) directions. The workflow is as follows: - First set up the dictionary file in your case folder 'system/terrainBlockMesherDict'. For doing so, copy and paste and modify the tutorials' examples, located at 'iwesol/OF/OF-2.1.1/tutorials/utilities/mesh/terrainBlockMesher'. - run 'terrainBlockMesher'. This creates and writes the mesh. For installation instructions, consult the file 'iwesol/README_INSTALL'. Thank you for using IWESOL. Please consider this a beta version and send comments, bugs, complaints to email@example.com .
