I did some more investigation in this regard. It seams a geometry
problem not a mesh problem. What we are after is called a compsolid in
OpenCascade, a container of solid(s) sharing common face(s) see
http://opencascade.blogspot.ch/2009/02/topology-and-geometry-in-open-cascade_27.html There is not much about them over the internet. If a VALID compsolid iss passad to GMSH in BREP it seams conformal meshing works even if there are inner curved shapes. As an example here the link to two boxes which are connected by a curved face in brep. Just import into GMSH mesh in 3D and export in your favorite mesh format. I used unv.
The problem is the creation of the compsolid. I did try in FreeCAD. If
someone is interested see
Zitat von Bernd Hahnebach <gmsh at b75.ch>:
> Why does the faces have to be connected by an geometry option in
> GMSH? We could GMSH just tell the faces are connected, or give GMSH
> the geometry with connected faces allready, couldn't we? Would this
> allow GMSH to make an conformal mesh on curved faces?
> The question would be how could this be done. May be by directly
> passing a BREP in which the faces are connected allready? Or by the
> use of geo format?
> Mhh, most important would be if conformal meshing on curved inner
> faces would be possible by GMSH if passing appropriate geometry to
> GMSH ?
