Hi
I want to simulate an axisymmetric flow using dsmcFoam I create a correct mesh (wedge type that worked with other solver without any error)
but when I use dsmcFoam I encounter bellow error

--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
Hitting a wedge patch should not be possible.

I would be very appreciative if someone could help me to simulate axisymmetric flow using dsmcFoam

Does anybody know anything about this? I also want to use a wedge-patch with dsmcFoam...

This sounds like a bug. Report it to http://openfoam.com/bugs/. Then based on their response you will know whether you are at fault, or the bug is real.

Has there been any progress in this matter?
I am also quite interested in axisymmetric dsmc simulations
and I have the same problem

I think the answer is in there:
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science...45793010001891
It is simply not supported yet!
