A topoSetSource to convert a cellSet to a cellZone (and associated cellSet).


Operand Type Location
input cellSet $FOAM_CASE/constant/polyMesh/sets/<set>
output 1 cellSet $FOAM_CASE/constant/polyMesh/sets/<set>
output 2 cellZone $FOAM_CASE/constant/polyMesh/cellZones


Example of the setToCellZone topoSet by using actions sub-dictionary in system/topoSetDict file:

    // Mandatory (inherited) entries
    name        <name>;
    type        cellSet;
    action      <action>;

    // Mandatory entries
    source      setToCellZone;
    set         <cellSetName>;

where the entries mean:

Property Description Type Required Default
name Name of cellSet word yes -
type Type name: cellSet word yes -
action Action applied on cells - see below word yes -
source Source name: setToCellZone word yes -
set Name of input cellSet word yes -

Options for the action entry:

new      | Create a new cellZone from selected cells of a cellSet
add      | Add selected cells of a cellSet into this cellZone
subtract | Remove selected cells of a cellSet from this cellZone
