Dear all,
I have set up a small test case to understand how to use the attachDetach dynamic mesh modifier. It is a simple cavity, where I attempt to insert a horizontal barrier by replacing the corresponding faces with boundaries. The case, which I am trying to run with OF1.5-dev, is attached.

The steps to run it are:
Quote:
blockMesh
faceSet
icoDyMFoam
However, the last steps fails with this error message:
Quote:
...
Not all zones and patches needed in the definition have been found. Please check your mesh definition.

From function void Foam::attachDetach::checkDefinition()
in file polyMeshModifiers/attachDetach/attachDetach.C at line 68.

FOAM aborting
I have found another post about this problem, with the recommendation to do what the error message says: make sure that all zones and patches are found. But I have checked that all patches are defined in blockMeshDict, and the faceSet "barrier" is also defined.
Please help me by running the attached case and suggesting where I have made a mistake.

Thank you very much
Patricia

I didn't try your case. But my guess is you might need to do "setsToZones" to convert faceSet to faceZone.

Reposted as nonzero boundary conditions in attachDetachFvMesh because the initial error was solved, but other problems remain.

Would be nice to know how you solved it. Just "solved" is a pretty uselss answer in a support forum.

Cheers, Hannes.
