SampledSurface, can't find closed walk around surface
Dear All,

Trying to define a plane to obtain samples in the specified plane with the following lines of code,

plane xPl(xP[cellI],n[cellI]);
sampledPlane smpPl("smpPl", mesh, xPl,word::null,false);

But, I'm getting the following error message,

--> FOAM Warning :
From function Foam::cuttingPlane::walkCell
in file cuttingPlane/cuttingPlane.C at line 205
Did not find closed walk along surface of cell 148775 starting from edge 345139 in 1001 iterations.
Collected cutPoints so far:

size mismatch: field (674) != surface (673)

From function sampledSurface::checkFieldSize(const Field<Type>&) const
in file /scratch/nwinkler/ProgramFiles/OF1-5/OpenFOAM-1.5-dev/src/sampling/lnInclude/sampledSurfaceTemplates.C at line 42.

FOAM exiting

Is there a solution to get rid of the surface field mismatch?

All the best

The field and surface size mismatch still bothers me from time to time. Is there anyone that could at least explain why this is happening, please.

If there is a solution to get rid of this......
