DEVELOPMENT OF AN APPLICATION FOR PREPARATION OF COMPUTATIONAL MESHES WITH GRADUATING AND CURVED EDGES FOR THE OpenFOAM SOFTWARE
- D. I. Chitalov
- S. T. Kalashnikov
This article is devoted to the problem of simplifying the preparation of computational meshes (CM) with graduating and curved edges for the OpenFOAM software environment (SE). The currently available commercial and freely distributed software used to solve the indicated problem is considered. The limitations of these software tools, the urgency of the problem, and the need to create own application are identified. The list of tasks facing the authors and the description of the research object are presented. The challenges faced by the authors in the process of implementing the application are formulated and the ways of their solution are suggested. The results of application of the program by the example of one of the training tasks included in the OpenFOAM SE are presented. The results of the work, its practical significance, and prospects for subsequent research in this direction are determined.
