Dear Foamers,

Help please, anyone know how to extrude a 2D mesh with front and back as cyclic b.c.

I saw the test case in tutorial in pimpleDyMFoam/wingMotion
Code:
runApplication extrudeMesh
runApplication autoPatch 90 -overwrite
runApplication createPatch -overwrite
But that is a empty patch, any ideas how to handle cyclic b.c.?

Many many thanks,

Take a look in:

applications/utilities/mesh/manipulation/createPatch

There is an example createPatchDict, so you can see how to use createPatch to create cyclics.
