helo bobi ,
i converted my 2D axisymmetry fluent mesh into OF and then changed the 0 folder according to my values also i checked mesh with checkmesh command its ok but when i tried to run it run it is giving me following error , can you please help me how to overcome from this error ?

FOAM FATAL IO ERROR:
inconsistent patch and patchField types for
patch type symmetryPlane and patchField type empty

file: /home/yash/OpenFOAM/yash-2.2.0/run/tutorials/compressible/rhoCentralFoam/exsercisePrb/0/p.boundaryField.Axis from line 39 to line 39.

Hi

Hi

It seems that you have problem with your patch type definition. In the tutorial Tobi has defined a wedge typed mesh and has set consistent pressure types for different patch types. your problem is a tiny one. Just take a deeper look into the defined patch types in Tobi tutorial. Although my suggestion is making a wedge-typed mesh instead of a plane.

Good Luck
Bobi

helo bobi ,
In my boundary file under polymesh (constant ), the axis is defined as the symmetric plane after my geometry conversion . Now should i write same symmetric plane in each variables in the 0 file for the axis .
thanks alot for your cont. help

Sonu my guess was right,you should set axis type in p file as symmetryPlane not empty if its really symmetryPlane.

Hi Sonu

As ehsan has hinted; the types of boundaries in boundary file , even the names (upper letters or not) must be the same as what you set for
flow variables as like pressure. Although I think you have solved it by now.

helo bobi,
actually my mesh is in cm and now i think i need to convert it into m , so as per my knowledge i have to use command transformPoints '(0.01 0.01 0.01)' but when i am giving this command then its giving the error :

Usage: transformPoints [OPTIONS]
options:
-case <dir> specify alternate case directory, default is the cwd
-noFunctionObjects
do not execute functionObjects
-parallel run in parallel
-region <name> specify alternative mesh region
-rollPitchYaw <vector>
transform in terms of '(roll pitch yaw)' in degrees
-roots <(dir1 .. dirN)>
slave root directories for distributed running
-rotate <(vectorA vectorB)>
transform in terms of a rotation between <vectorA> and
<vectorB> - eg, '( (1 0 0) (0 0 1) )'
-rotateFields read and transform vector and tensor fields too
-scale <vector> scale by the specified amount - eg, '(0.001 0.001 0.001)'
for a uniform [mm] to [m] scaling
-translate <vector>
translate by the specified <vector> - eg, '(1 0 0)'
-yawPitchRoll <vector>
transform in terms of '(yaw pitch roll)' in degrees
-srcDoc display source code in browser
-doc display application documentation in browser
-help print the usage

Using: OpenFOAM-2.2.0 (see www.OpenFOAM.org)
Build: 2.2.0-b363e8d14789



--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
Wrong number of arguments, expected 0 found 1

can you please tell me whats wrong here ?? thanks a lot for your continuous help

Send a message via MSN to tomf Send a message via Skype™ to tomf
The usage would be:

Code:
transformPoints -scale '(0.01 0.01 0.01)'
Regards,
Tom

FYI: Given that the topic of questions had changed from the original thread libOpenSMOKE (from right after the post #208), I've moved the posts above to this new thread you are currently reading.

edit: and moved the question about rhoCentralFoam to here: Slow run with rhoCentralFoam
