Dear all

I'm trying to set a rotating blade case, using MRFsimpleFoam and periodic cyclicAMI faces in OF 2.1.x

Everything works, except a weird behaviour of cycliAMI faces inside MRFzone : they seem to be partially connected, and generate rotating strips, localized near the surface ! Please see the different images.
At the contrary the cyclicAMI faces located outside the MRF zone operate properly

I've been sticked with this problem for a few days, and I would be grateful to anybody who would help me

The complete case is downloadable here : http://www.jmichel.cmoi.cc/?q=node/79
Just run ./allRun

Thanks in advance

Jean-Michel

Dear Linnemann

Many thanks for this answer, this line fixed the problem:

nonRotatingPatches (MRFcyclicTrail MRFcyclicLead);


You helped me a lot

Adding the cyclicAMI patches to nonRotatingPatches() does not work for me. I am using OF2.2.2. My results are similar to the images posted here. After many different attempts i dont believe it is possible to use MRF in conjunction with cyclicAMI as periodic boundaries. I could be wrong, but i would say this is only possible with normal cyclic boundaries in 2.2.2

This also seems impossible in OF2.3.0. Can anyone support my claim or possibly suggest how it can be done? Thanks

Dear Ash


You might check that you have this in system/decomposeParDict :

preservePatches(yourMRFcyclic0 yourMRFcyclic1);


Hope that helps

Could you provide a example test case, where it is not working?

I'm using cyclicAMI as cyclic boundaries in conjunction with MRF and everything worked so far using OpenFOAM 2.2.x and 2.3.x.

Regards,

Martin
