Hello,

I try to get familiar was solving temperature Problems in Openfoam.
at the Moment I'm still working with 1.4 until our admin will Install 1.6..

I was running the hotRoom tutorial which is usings Blockmesh.
Because I will not use Ansa for further work not the Blockmesh in reconstructed the mesh using ansa.

Ansa 13.xx is able to read and write OpenFoam decks (ok the writing has a bug)..
I opened the OpenFoam deck with Ansa , saved it as fluent-file and used fluent3DMeshtofoam.

There is now a cellZones file in the polymesh direktory, the boundary an initial conditions a took from the tutorial.

After 3 steps the calculation crashes

Does somebody know the reason?

Hi,

i'm not sure to have understood your question about ANSA and blockMesh but i think you have instability problems: the courant number increases untill the crash of the simulation.

You should try to use smaller timesteps, maybe a finer mesh and check that your boundary conditions are correct.

Hi Anke,

Which ANSA version (v13.0.x, what is the x?) are you using and what kind
of bug have you found in the output?

Hello Anke

Can you kindly advise me how you resolved this issue. I have the same problem in rhoPimpleFoam. I have attached my error file. Can you kindly advise how I can solve it. Case is air flowing in pipe and assumed as compressible.
I shall be grateful for your support.

Regards
