How to Create Baffles in Geometry

I was trying to create baffles inside a rectangular box. I went through other tutorials in OpenFOAM. Sometimes, they are creating baffles by defining the regions or zones in topoSetDict and using those zones to create baffles. As I am new to OpenFOAM, I am finding it difficult to understand why they are creating cellSet or cellZones and from that , they are creating faceSet and faceZones. Sometimes, they are using STL files inside createBafflesDict. And Sometimes, they are defining the faceZone in snappHexMeshDict. Can you please help me how can i learn it with ease? I have tried almost everything and still couldn't find a way to create it. Thank you. Regards, Ankur

Hi Ankur, There is createBaffleDict utility in OpenFoam to create Baffles in a geometry. I attach a youtube video link in which mesh is created using gmsh and the way to use the utility has been explained. This will be easier than using snappyHexMesh which needs STL files. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Ex1RHDQqIc Hope this will be useful.
