creating cyclicAMI patches
 
Hello Foamers,

I am trying to create cyclic AMI patch in my geometry but everytime I am running into the following error, when I run snappyHexMesh.

Code:

I have the following patches for AMI, generated after running blockMesh.

Code:

AMI1
    {
        type            cyclicAMI;
        nFaces          3000;
        startFace      357000;
        matchTolerance  0.0001;
        neighbourPatch  AMI2;
        transform      translational;
        separationVector (14.3 0 0);
    }
    AMI2
    {
        type            cyclicAMI;
        nFaces          3000;
        startFace      360000;
        matchTolerance  0.0001;
        neighbourPatch  AMI1;
        transform      translational;
        separationVector (-14.3 0 0);
    }

The separation vector is the distance between the two patches in the x-direction. Can some one explain where I am going wrong. Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Dhruv

Hello Dhruv,

It might be easier for you to create the AMI patches without snappyHexMesh knowing that they are such patches. It is done that way in the tutorials/incompressible/pimpleDyMFoam/propeller tutorial, using a featureEdge condition in snappyHexMeshDict and then creating the AMI patches.
