Hallo,

I'm new here and i'm new with OpenFoam. So i work at simulation of swimming cylinder in waves. I've started to wright blockMeshDict file.
As reference for mesh generation i have took an example from ProgrammersGuide.pdf (openFoam parent dir. -->) page 47 ff..
So i want to see what i' ve done in Paraview, but there is a problem with block mesh. After typing in Terminal "blockMesh" from my case dir. i've got error that looks like:

--> FOAM FATAL IO ERROR:
Failed wmake "dynamicCode/_d908cad1f0f5da63365b2a5dd0f6be17536ee27d/platforms/linux64GccDPOpt/lib/libcodeStream_d908cad1f0f5da63365b2a5dd0f6be17536e e27d.so"


file: /home/v000v/OpenFOAM/v000v-2.0.1/run/tutorials/multiphase/interDyMFoam/ras/FLNG/constant/polyMesh/blockMeshDict from line 17 to line 17.

From function functionEntries::codeStream::execute(..)
in file db/dictionary/functionEntries/codeStream/codeStream.C at line 210.

FOAM exiting

Can anybody offer a solution for my problem?

Hallo again,
I've got a couple of problems under control, so I've change a little bit my blockMeshDict.
Now i've got another one. I think that the problem is in a mesh at the edge between cylindrical mesh and the rest. That the faces are not identical on the both sides of edge.
How can I assemble my mesh so that there are same face number on the both sides of the edge?

Should i calculate it by side and arrange my mesh there for, or is there some skripts or other tricks to get the mesh works?

Thanks!

Hallo again,

I've got my mesh to view. I have a problem with a boundary conditions in the mesh. "Down" should be my symmetry plane, so I have define all faces in this plane. Terminal massage says that a couple of them have no neighbor cell.
If i write these faces as comment, then turns openFoam in Paraview these faces to default faces and this pretty ugly.

So can anybody take a look at my Mesh and explain me what the case is?

Thank you guys.

Hi,

there were four minor problems, their correction marked with "// <---".

Should work now.

Probably your facelist for some patches is not complete. Boundary faces that are not assigned to a patch form a seperate patch. This is probably what happened here.

Thanks, work's fine!

P.S. too much points and blocks to hold overview. Thank you!
