Good day to you all!
I'm currently working on meshing a Hydrofoil i'm supposed to do simulations on for university. I have an instruction from my predeseccor but it's not very detailed at times.
I'm currently stuck getting the mesh right. The instructions mention substracting the wings geometry from the environment by use of a boolean operation since fluid dynamics are calculated by the boundaries and not solid parts. However it is not stated wether to choose "keep tool body" or not. Any input on that?
He continues by adding certain faces to components like inlet, outlet, sides, atmosphere etc. Those all seem straight forward. He however doesn't mention wether the "part" component should use the surfaces of the win geometry itself or the interior surfaces of the domain created by the boolean operation.
Also is there a way to force the software to only use tetrahedrons for meshing? According to openfoams check mesh there are a few houndred different geometries in there that i'd like to eliminate.
Thanks in advance for any input!
Have a nice day!
