freefoam-mergeOrSplitBaffles(1) Detects faces that share points (baffles). Either merge them or duplicate the points.

• can only handle pairwise boundary faces. So three faces using the same points is not handled (is illegal mesh anyway)

• there is no option to only split/merge some baffles.

• surfaces consisting of duplicate faces can be topologically split if the points on the interior of the surface cannot walk to all the cells that use them in one go.

• Parallel operation (where duplicate face is perpendicular to a coupled boundary) is supported but not really tested. (Note that coupled faces themselves are not seen as duplicate faces)
