Hello,

I'm trying to set up the simulation of stirred tank. Using the rotational symmetry to save a large portion of the cells when running the case steadyState is rather easy (see attachment). But I am not sure how to set up the cyclicAMIs to do the same for a transient simulation. The rotational symmetry should still apply, but is OpenFOAM able to map the overlapping faces onto eachother using omega*time for example (20 in this case).

Greetings

overlapGGI seems to be the solution, although I would have preferred to stay with vanilla OF.
