I was trying to do case setup using "dynamicTopoFvMesh" and came across following error.Need help.
please see the attached test case.
i am using foam extend 3.1.

--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
Failed to determine a vertex ring.
Failure mode: 1
Edge: 5162:: (1463 1469)
edgeFaces: 2(4523 5035)
Patch: outlet
Current vertexHull: 2{-1}

From function
void dynamicTopoFvMesh::buildVertexHull
(
const label eIndex,
labelList& vertexHull,
const label checkIndex
)

in file dynamicTopoFvMesh/dynamicTopoFvMesh.C at line 1357.

FOAM aborting

Aborted (core dumped)

I am new to this kind of mesh Motion examples and just trying to set up an case on trial and error basis. apologies if i have made any silly mistake.

Regards,
Rupesh

Quick answers:
For the issue on this post, I suggest you take a step back and check the example cases they have for this... check here: http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...l-example.html


You sent me a PM with a few questions, which I'll quote here:

I have seen similar thread by you for "valvmov-topo_v2" case with the same error of Negative Volume.
So i am eager to know if you have found out the way to resolve the same as my case is quite similar to the one you worked on.

As suggested by Sandeep Menon in the reply of your post, i have tried various combination of no. of sweeps and other parameters in DynamicMeshDict file but sooner or later it fails with same error.

So please let me know
1. if you have found out the way to resolve the same.
2. Any suitable document to know more about the "dynamicTopoFvMesh"

I am using foam-extend3.1 and very new to the "dynamicTopoFvMesh" utility. Please feel free to contact me for any more information you need from my end.
As I mentioned in an answer I gave to one of your older posts a few minutes ago, by not providing all of the necessary information straight away, means that I don't know when it will be the next time I can take a look at your case.

Either way, negative volume usually is related to the re-mesh option needing to be turned on (I know the option is defined somewhere in "dynamicMeshDict"), because the mesh is probably already too stretched and is unable to stretch any more.

Dear Bruno,

Apologies for not sharing the complete information and Thanks for guiding me along.
As correctly predicted by you, the issue of Negative volume was related to the Mesh refinement option available in "dynamicMeshDict" file, and I have corrected the issue by adjusting suitable "refinementOptions".
At present the "moveDynamicMesh" command works fine but I am getting following error when I try to use "pimpleDymFoam" solver.
(Note- I am using foam-extend 3.1 version.)

To reproduce the error simply run - pimpleDymFoam

Anyone got any solution for the above error? Somehow I keep bumping into same error and have no idea how to resolve it.
