  • Can we use snappyHex only to refine empty domain?

    Good day dear prof. Baris and Collegues,

    I created background domain with blockMesh but now, I just want ONLY to refine certain regions inside of it at the locations where after I will apply a source term via fvOptions.

    I though maybe, using snappyHexMesh, without any .stl object, I could create  searchablebox/searchablecylinder that are defined in geometry subdirectory and then, set the refinement specs in castelledMesh>refinementRegions. I ran snappyHexMesh this way but did nothing to my original background domain….

    > am I wrong thinking that snappyHex works this way without .stl objects to substract?

    > or it is possible to use snappyHex this way but could I’ve done something wrong?

    Any recommendation how to achieve refinement in certain regions of empty domain, will be welcomed.

    Thank you!
