Dear Friends,

I am OF beginner in the moment trying to solve my daily (1D) calculation of open channel hydraulics.

I am trying to solve a similar case by adopting the Example available in Tutorial folder --> Multiphase --> weirOverflow. It is a simple water flow to a channel that has some regulated obstructions. Well, name it a ecological pathway or precisely a fish ladder (Please see the picture attached). The geometry and mesh was built using salome meca. And during the first time steps, it stop runs.

Anyone would tell me, whether the tutorial's explanation for the specific case (weirOverflow) actually exist ? Or could anyone point me what I have done wrong to the model ?
Thank you very much for your time

Best Regards

I was working with similar open channel flows, but with OF 1.7. After a lot of fails, I discovered, that the interFoam solver is very sensitive to the mesh. For my case, the simulations ran stable with hexahedral mesh cells. So, try to not use tetrahedral cells. I suggest, to create your mesh with blockMesh by starting with a simple channel with some obstacles. Maybe that will help...

However, I wasn't working with OF 2.3. and I will transfer my old OF 1.7 cases to OF 2.3 by using the BCs of the weiroverflow.
