Mesh Generation

Hex-dominant automatic “wind-tunnel/external flow” (only CFD)

The automated Hex-dominant operation for wind-tunnel/external flow reduces the parameter set of the original snappyHexMesh operation to a minimum and sets the rest of it automatically based on the CAD model you are meshing. You should use this operation to get a quick mesh in order to run preliminary CFD analysis for external flow cases.

Find a tutorial for Hex-dominant automatic operation for an wind-tunnel/external CFD analysis in the the Spoiler flow meshing tutorial.
