Hi dear Foamers!

I have a 3D rectangular straight pipe align z axis.
I want to sample data in a plane normal to main flow and use this sampleDic:

Code:
surfaceFormat vtk;
interpolationScheme cellPointFace;

fields
(
    U
);

sets
(
);

surfaces
(
   
plane11
  
 {
     
type   plane;

     basePoint    (0.0 0.0 0.6);  
     normalVector (0 0.0000001 0.1);
     interpolate true; 
}
);
if I use (0 0 0.1 ) instead of (0 0.00000001 0.1) for normal vector , when I run "sample" it make folder but all folders are empty !!!

what you think?

Greetings Amin,

Mmm... not much information to go on, but my guess is that you're trying to get a sample right on top of a wall or patch. I think "sampleDict" can sample a patch directly. You can find a complete example here:
Code:
$WM_PROJECT_DIR/applications/utilities/postProcessing/sampling/sample/sampleDict
To know what value "$WM_PROJECT_DIR" has:
Code:
echo $WM_PROJECT_DIR
Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Amin,

Are you able to do a slice/cut on ParaView on that same plane (0 0 0.1)?

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Amin,

I haven't answered back because I haven't had time to create a test case of my own.
If you could post a small example case, or give an example based on one of OpenFOAM's tutorials, it would be easier to diagnose what might be going on!

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Amin,

Well, the problem apparently is because you're using a reaaally old version of OpenFOAM. I've used just now OpenFOAM 2.1.x, 2.0.x and 1.7.x, all with success!

So the solution should be: upgrade your OpenFOAM version!

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Amin,

Well, although this worked for me, it looks like that sometimes it doesn't work for other people as well. Here's such an example: http://www.openfoam.org/mantisbt/view.php?id=520

So, you might indeed need a slight offset to one direction in order to get a proper sampling when the lines/points are too close to a patch or wall.

Best regards,
Bruno
