Hi guys,
I am simulating a mixer3D case, totally mesh is about 200m. I expect MRFInterFoam could be faster than interDyMFoam, but via the log, interDyMFoam is faster. Both the result is fine.So why?any comments would be appreciated. MRFlog Code:

I have read lots of your post,Thats very helpful.Thanks for sharing your CFD experience. Regarding to my case. [*]Which OpenFOAM version are you using? I am using 220 [*]Are you running both in parallel? If so, which decomposition method was used? Yes, I am using simple method in my laptop just for a test. [*]Why is the MRF version referring to AMI? Do the tutorials for MRFInterFoam also refer to AMI in their output? Actually,in MRF, I dont need AMI,but if I want to run the same case in sliding mesh and MRF. I have to use two meshes. While in MRFInterFoam, I can use the mesh with AMI, so I dont need to make another mesh for dynamic solver. [*]Of the 200 million cells, how many cells are moving? In sliding mesh, There are 2127678 cells.Total cell is 2162754. [*]Are you certain that the same volume of fluid is filled on both cases? Yeah,of course,I use the same setFieldsDict. [*]Are there any cyclic patches, symmetry planes and so on? Nope, The majority of em are walls,impeller,Only one outlet. [*]This seems to be too early in the simulation to diagnose which one is fastest... Um...Perhaps I should try it another day for a long runing..? In my laptop, it took about 8 hours calculating 0.08 seconds.

Roughly 1 or 2 hours each should be more than enough, I guess. But first you better reconfigure the MRF case to not rely on AMI at all, if possible! Best regards, Bruno

Is there anything different between this two situation?I regard the result is independent with the rotating cells number. Quote:

Hi sharonyue,

For example (all theory here, I have not checked the code!), here's an abstract concept:
If this theory is correct, then there is only one (or a few) remaining explanations as to why AMI was not used in the past: memory! AMI might require a lot more memory than MRF to run. Or perhaps because the algorithm for AMI is a lot more complex... or harder to calibrate... overlapping cells/faces can also be a pain... Best regards, Bruno

Anyway,this mesh is without AMI.I will try the same mesh with AMI and make a speed test another day.oh my laptop its a pity.. Thanks Bruno. You did a splendid job regarding CFD. BTW, do you have a blog or something? Regards.

Hi sharonyue,
Here's an interesting read about MRF: http://www.esicfd.com/faq/index.php...=19&artlang=en My expertise are in installing OpenFOAM When it comes to CFD, I only know some stuff on the topic The first link in my first signature points to a post to the only blog I've got. Other than that, I've got twitter: @wyldckat Best regards, Bruno

hi sharonyue,
this topic seems to be same as what i'm doing now. I have done the simulation for centrifugal fan 3D using simpleFoam with mrfZone and it works well. I would like to try this simulation using pimpleDyMFoam which requires me to have AMI. Have you done the one using AMI?? If yes how did you define the AMI? using MRF?? I have read threads regarding the AMI and also the propeller tutorial. In snappyHexMesh there are already faceZone and cellZone being created. Why there is a need to define that again using toposetDict. I hope someone could help me to have a better understanding in continuing my project using pimpleDyMFoam. Btw the simulation using simpleFoam MRF took me a day to be completed using 12 processors (including sHM: cells generated almost 8 000 000) With the assumption from wyldckat that one using pimpleFoam could reduce the time, i would really like to try it and to confirm it..

Greetings nash,
Some of the details on this topic are available in this thread: Problem using AMI namely start reading from post #184 Keep in mind that simpleFoam with MRF gives you a steadystate result. In theory, it should be faster than using pimpleDyMFoam, because this latter solver provides a transient solution with dynamic mesh, which should be several times slower to perform. The comparable differences in wall clock time is only if you compare pimpleFoam+MRF vs pimpleDyMFoam+AMI, because both are transient solvers. And keep in mind that MRF is by definition meant for steadystate (I learned this recently), so be very careful when using MRF in transient simulations. Last but not least:
Bruno

thanks Bruno for the explaination.
here is some information i get from the link posted by you: Quote:
Lets say if i want to make the mesh move, i need to use AMI+transient solver which will lead to large simulation time as you mentioned above. Maybe i can run the simulation using transient solver pimpleFoam and compare it with MRFsimpleFoam ( just to confirm the statement from the esi website) Do you have any idea which solver i could also use to simulate this fan (rotor and stator)? Ideas from other foamers are also welcomed thanks

Hi nash,
I was following nicely your post until this question: Quote:
Without knowing more about the case in question, it's complicated to suggest anything else. Best regards, Bruno

In the log files in the first post it can be seen that different solvers are used (DICPCG and GAMG / GAMGPCG). Make sure the solution control is the same for comparison to be valid.
