OpenFOAM-1.5-extend checkMesh problem
 
In openfoam extend:

cd $FOAM_TUTORIALS/icoFoam/cavity
blockMesh
checkMesh
...
Mesh OK.

transformPoints -scale "(0.001 0.001 0.001)"
checkMesh
...
***Max skewness = 116.905, 1542 highly skew faces detected which may impair the quality of the results Threshold = 4
<<Writing 1542 skew faces to set skewFaces
Failed 1 mesh checks.

The same procedure works fine under 1.5.x with no errors and the mesh looks ok (which it doesn't in -extend) I did recompile everything but the problem persists. Is there some tolerance settings that I have to change? -scale "(0.01 0.01 0.01)" works fine?

Hi,

I did the exact same sequence of commands you did with my local installation of OpenFOAM-1.5-dev (revision 1294). No tolerances tweaking.

Got no error messages, and the mesh I got after calling transformPoints looks fine too.

My max skewness went from 1e-08 (before transformPoints) to 2 (after transformPoints), which seems to be OK for checkMesh.

" Max skewness = 2 OK. "

Hi Martin,

I just tried with a fresh opensuse (x64) install + latest version from svn and now I get the same output as you. Problem was on my side but it's unclear what caused it.

Thank you for your attention!

Regards

Johan
