Update on poles with OpenFOAM/Pointwise export
We have corrected the export of domains with poles where by Pointwise was previously unable to collapse the hex cells with zero faces (along the pole) into prisms.
I checked it using the mesh that su_junwei posted in the original thread (http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...tml#post193292
)and checkMesh reports everything ok. Here's the summary:
internal faces: 5853
boundary patches: 6
point zones: 0
face zones: 0
cell zones: 0
Number of cells of each type:
tet wedges: 0
Boundary definition OK.
Point usage OK.
Upper triangular ordering OK.
Topological cell zip-up check OK.
Face vertices OK.
Face-face connectivity OK.
Number of regions: 1 (OK).
Checking patch topology for multiply connected surfaces ...
Patch Faces Points Surface
back 3135 3552 ok (not multiply connected)
barrier 362 724 ok (not multiply connected)
front 3135 3552 ok (not multiply connected)
inlet 15 31 ok (not multiply connected)
outlet 15 31 ok (not multiply connected)
wall 221 444 ok (not multiply connected)
The fix will appear in the next release candidate of Pointwise scheduled to be released on April 22. I would like to test some other pole grids so if you have any to share, please post a reply with the grid.
