recomposePar question
 
Hi all,

I have a parallel / decomposed case where each time directory contains its own polyMesh directory with associated files (e.g., points, faces, etc). The mesh may be moving over time.

The recomposePar puts everything back together except for these polyMesh directories.

Is there a way I can make this happen via recomposePar or some other utility or mechanism?

Regards,
Madeleine.

Hi,

you can have a look at the case with paraview and set the type of the case to <<decomposed>>

Code:


touch paraview.foam
paraview paraview.foam

Tobi,

thanks. That works for visualization, which is already a good thing.

It would be nice to have the mesh recomposed as well for each time step.

But apparently that's not possible.

Thanks,
Madeleine.

Hi Madeleine,

it is possible to reconstruct time changing meshes, take a look at reconstructParMesh utility.

Best,
Pablo
