Dear colleagues,

I'm trying to simulate a set stator/rotor of a turbine.
I have two separate mesh: a stator mesh with one nozzle and a rotor with two blade (see the image - turbine.jpg). Initially, I used mergeMeshes join the mesh and I put the ggi conditions between stator and rotor mesh. I'm going wrong in this configuration, because my job not run correctly. The case is aborting, and emiting the following message:


Face zone ... name not found. Please check your GGI interface definition.
From function label ggiPolyPatch::zoneIndex() const
in file meshes/polyMesh/polyPatches/constraint/ggi/ggiPolyPatch.C at line 404.
FOAM aborting
Aborted

I would like if is possible to use OpenFOAM 1.6-ext or 1.5-dev for to do this task with no conform mesh and if there is a similar tutorial for this case.

Thank you!
Pantalećo

Dear A V Pantaleao

Which version of OpenFOAM you are using. If u want to use ggi then it is available only on extension version of OpenFOAM.

Dear A V Pantaleao

The facezone is not created in the faceZone directory.So first you have to create the faceZone.For creating the faceZone, you follow the section number 9.5.3 mention here http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Si...vaned_diffuser .


Hope you will do it.
