Include rectangular/square fin in square cavity
Good evening sir,
by your videos i have learned many things also i am doing research using openfoam too. still i am learner.
my work is " study of convection in side the square enclosure with rectangular fin "
square cavity of length 1m X 1m.
In side the cavity i want to include rectangular fin of length 0.6m X 0.2m.
please tell me the idea so that i can do it.
what solver to be used ?
with out fin i have used buoyantBoussinesqSimpleFoam for my results.

Hi Vnarayanan.wgl,

Is your problem 2D or 3D ?

If you are solving a 2D case you can create the geometry using blockMesh.

For a 3D geometry you can use any CAD software for creating the geometry and Mesh it. The mesh file can then be imported into OpenFOAM and solved.

I cannot really comment on the type of solver you are using, you can have a look at the solver list available in the user guide and check mainly for solvers related to Heat Transfer.

Hi <span class="meta"><span class="user">Vnarayana.wgl,

You can go through the tutorial on Creating Simple geometries in OpenFOAM on the Spoken-Tutorial website for creating your blockMeshDict file. User Guide of OpenFOAM can also be useful for understanding blockMeshDict file.
