I am solving the damBreak tutorial in user guide with imported Gambit mesh.
Boundary conditions in boundary file have been rewrited.

This is .msh file generated in Gambit.

setFields is ok.

Error occurs when I solve the case with interFoam.
Code:

Hi!

I have similar problems, but only with a modified interFoam solver so far. Interesting that it also happens with the standard solver. What are your boundary conditions?

Greetings

Update:

Can you confirm that commenting out the first two lines here (pEqn.H):
Code:
        if (pimple.finalNonOrthogonalIter())
        {
            //phi = phiHbyA - p_rghEqn.flux();

            //U = HbyA + rAU*fvc::reconstruct((phig - p_rghEqn.flux())/rAUf);
            U.correctBoundaryConditions();
            fvOptions.correct(U);
        }
"solves" the problem (at least the error message is gone - solution obviously not correct)?

The reason at this point is, that p_rghEqn.flux() returns a "-nan" field. Your first written timestep should be "-nan" everywhere in p_rgh, correct?

BTW: Serial or parallel?

greetings

Sorry for answering myself all the time but:
It seems as if
Code:
- ghf*fvc::snGrad(rho)
in "surfaceScalarField phig" produces an "-nan" on a boundary. Not in all cases, therefore I do not yet know where it comes from. Can you maybe confirm that in your case? Just comment it out and run again.

Hi, nlinder!
I am afraid that we got different problems although we received similar error.
Mine has been solved, see here.

Which line do you want me to comment?
Both
Code:
phi = phiHbyA - p_rghEqn.flux();
U = HbyA + rAU*fvc::reconstruct((phig - p_rghEqn.flux())/rAUf);
and
Code:
- ghf*fvc::snGrad(rho)

Hi!

Allright, thanks for the information. In my case it was enough to comment out
Code:
- ghf*fvc::snGrad(rho)
I now specified a boundary condition for rho and in my testCase I had some issues with the pressure and Velocity BC. I think I somehow "solved" that problem currently.
Thanks for discussing

Nicklas
