Hello,

for my computations I tried to make a cyclic boundary condition out of two patches on a mesh converted from Ansys Icem. The computational domain consists of a pie-shaped segment with 6 different boundary patches (top, bottom, inside, outside, theta1, theta2).

In Icem all patches are defined as a wall. After converting the Icem mesh with cfx4ToFoam to OpenFOAM I tried to make a cyclic boundary out of theta1 and theta2 with the application createPatch. After running the first time, I got the following error message:

// * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * //
Create time

Reading createPatchDict.

Then I increased the matching tolerance in createPatchDict from 1e-3 to 5e-3 and ran createPatch again. Now it seemed to run without an error message. The output looks like following:

The I copied the mesh from 5e-06 to constant/polyMesh and tried to run foamToVTK to have a look on the final mesh. But foamToVTK stops with the following error message:

FOAM aborting

Can anybody tell me what I did wrong and how I can solve the problems?


And the…I've got another problem. I also want to use cyclicGgi for this geometry. I read that it is only available in the xx-dev versions of OpenFoam. I only found a version OpenFOAM 1.5-dev. Is there already a 1.6-dev version? Then I also found the git repository with version 1.6.x. But the problem is, that at work under linux I don't have an internet connection, so I must download the files with windows and then copy them to my linux computer. Is there a possibility to download OpenFoam 1.6.x with a Windows system?
However, I tried to install OpenFOAM 1.5-dev on my system and by running Allwmake I got a lot of error messages like these:

/home/xxxx/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5-dev/lib/linux64GccDPOpt/libOpenFOAM.so: undefined reference to `vtable for Foam::OPstream'

Therefore the directory /OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5-dev/applications/bin/linux64GccDPOpt/ is empty and foamInstallationTest says:

icoFoam
WARNING: Conflicting installations:
OpenFOAM settings : /home/xxxx/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5-dev/applications/bin/linux64GccDPOpt/icoFoam
current path :
CRITICAL ERROR

I don't know how to solve this problem, because I could install OpenFOAM 1.5 and 1.6 without problems.

Does anybody know a answer to my question?

Thanks
Jennifer
