From Pointwise to OpenFoam 2.1 cyclicAMI...
I have been using 1.5-dev ggi and I wanted to give 2.1 AMI a try.
I made a test unstructured mesh of a flat plate rotating in freestream using Pointwise 'T-Rex' boundary layer unstructured meshing technique.
Before I get into errors, could someone detail a procedure for starting up an AMI case from scratch? Given that I have an AMI tutorial case and my custom polyMesh files.
How to use AMI
OpenFOAM Version 2.1
How to use cyclicAMI.
Assume that inlet and outlet are the patches you want to use as AMI.
1. Change the boundary-file in the constant/polymesh directory according to:
the same has to be done in the neighbourPatch.
2. In the 0-file change the pointMotion or pointDisplacement field or whatever you have given from the patch of the AMI to:
3. Make faceSets out of the patchFields with the command:
faceSet AMI new patchToFace inlet
faceSet AMI add patchToFace outlet
4. Run the case
I hope this helps and is working.
Did you manage to get the case running? I am working with OF1.6-ext at the moment. Since my particle dynamics were implemented in the OF2.1.x, I would like to give AMI a try. However, the procedure to set up an AMI case was not well documented. It will be great if you can share some insight.
Can you share some advice if I want to set up the case as the followings instead of having inlet and outlet as AMI interface?
The flat bar is inside a rotating inner cylinder and the outer cylinder is stationary, the interface between the inner and outer cylinders are the AMI interface. How should we set it up in this case?
could someone explain a bit more about the third point? why is it necessary to run setSet?
I succesfully used cyclicAMI with inlet/outlet (see last post: http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...ber-faces.html), but the inlet and outlet fields I obtain are not good.
I just edited boundary file as suggested above, changed the 0/.... files, and ran the simulation.
am I missing something?
