I would just like to confirm the current capabilities of the new dynamic meshing interDvMFoam solver based on some errors that I have been receiving.
While the solver handles mesh motion in both 2 and 3-D simulations, the dynamic mesh refinement/coarsening is only enabled for 3-D cases.
I have tried implementing this for a 2-D case, and received an error related to only 6 points being defined for the cells being refined. I know that there are functions capable of identifying when a mesh is 2-D or 3-D, and it would be possible for the adaptive meshing to change it's behaviour accordingly. However, as the tutorials provided only include the 3-D version of the dam-breaking example for a dynamic refinement example, I am assuming that the 2-D capability does not exist.
If I am incorrect, and enabling the model in 2-D requires only the inclusion of some parameter, then I would appreciate it if someone would provide some detail on what modifications need to be performed to the dictionary file.
Regardless, the adaptive meshing is a feature that has been a long time in coming, and I send out my thanks to those individuals who implemented it and have made it so straightforward to apply.
