attach detach in parallel
 
Hi Foamers,

who of you has successfully applied attach/detach topo changes in parallel?
How to decompose the grid. I ve been told that the faces have to be treated on one processor and shouldn t be distributed on several processors.
Thanks in advance!

Cheers Peter

Hi Foamers,

who of you has successfully applied attach/detach topo changes in parallel?
How to decompose the grid. I ve been told that the faces have to be treated on one processor and shouldn t be distributed on several processors.

Here, a small description of my problem.

I am using OF-1.6-ext for in-cylinder aerodynamic problems. For the valve and piston motion I am using the accordionEngineMesh class. It uses the FEM automesh motion solver for the valve and piston motion and for valve opening and closure the attach/detach boundaries. And here the problem pops up.
Everything works fine in serial but in parallel it doesn t.
The problem comes from the attach/detach faces. When I decompose my case on 2 processors and I try to run it following error message appear.

MPI_ABORT was invoked on rank 0 in communicator MPI_COMM_WORLD
with errorcode 1.

NOTE: invoking MPI_ABORT causes Open MPI to kill all MPI processes.
You may or may not see output from other processes, depending on
exactly when Open MPI kills them.

mpirun has exited due to process rank 0 with PID 8568 on
node nusm-14 exiting without calling "finalize". This may
have caused other processes in the application to be
terminated by signals sent by mpirun (as reported here).

The faces for my the detach/attach topoChanger are only on one processor. Since all processors are executing the same tasks, one processor is complaining that it don t have faces for the attach/detach topoChanger.

I ve added a small description with my problem (simplified single cylinder engine, only for mesh motion tests)

Hi Peter,

Did you made any progress on the topic that you have described here?
I would like to simulate real engines in OF, so this topic is essential for me.
It will be so great if would you mind if you share your insight to the problem ;)
