Hi

I have a simple aerofoil case where I want to split the foil into upper and lower so that I can play with the wall roughness on each side.
How do I set up mapFieldsDict to run from a stable solution where the foil is one patch, into one where the foil is now split in two patches?

i.e. What do I put in patchMap or cuttingPatches?

Thanks

Nick

Did you try to run mapFields without the -consistent flag?

And maybe in the mapFieldsDict you need to put
Code:
patchMap
(
    upperFoil foil
    lowerFoil  foil
);
I don't think you need cuttingPatches, as it look like your domain did not change.

Thanks Bernhard

I'll try that. I didn't use -consistent but had other options flagged. I think I'm ok with mapFields except for the ..Dict part...
