A topoSetSource to select all faces in a given faceSet, which are oriented in slave cells of a given cellSet.


Operand Type Location
input 1 faceSet $FOAM_CASE/constant/polyMesh/sets/<set>
input 2 cellSet $FOAM_CASE/constant/polyMesh/sets/<set>
output faceZone $FOAM_CASE/constant/polyMesh/faceZones


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

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

    // Mandatory entries
    source      setsToFaceZone;
    faceSet     <faceSetName>;
    cellSet     <cellSetName>;

    // Optional entries
    flip        false;

where the entries mean:

Property Description Type Required Default
name Name of faceZone word yes -
type Type name: faceZone word yes -
action Action applied on faces - see below word yes -
source Source name: setsToFaceZone word yes -
faceSet Name of input faceSet word yes -
cellSet Name of input cellSet containing the slave cells word yes -
flip Flag to select master/slave cells bool no false

Options for the action entry:

new      | Create a new faceZone from selected faces of a faceZone
add      | Add selected faces of a faceZone into this faceZone
subtract | Remove selected faces of a faceZone from this faceZone
