gmshToFoam teminates on Segmentation fault
 
1 Attachment(s)
I created a .msh file with gmsh 2.4.2 on Ubuntu Linux. Now I want to convert it to OpenFoam201. I copied the mesh to the OpenFoam example folder $FOAM_RUN/tutorials/incompressible/icoFoam/cavity/ . There I executed "gmshToFoam ./Savonius_S2.geo.msh". It terminates on a Segmentation fault (I shortened some long output):

Segmentation fault

I guess that something is wrong with my mesh. I attached the file and would be glad if you could have a look at it.

you are not in the right forum >>>> http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...meshing-other/

With which software did you create your .msh file?

XXLRay November 30, 2011 04:22

As stated out in the first post I created the mesh with gmsh 2.4.2.

Perhaps one of the admins could be so kind to move this thread to the correct location?

XXLRay December 2, 2011 03:02

Can anybody confirm that the mesh itself and not my installation of OpenFOAM causes the fault?

XXLRay December 2, 2011 03:47

In http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...ion-error.html a similar problem has been described. It seems as if it could be solved by removing the "gmsh label". Unfortunately I have not idea what this means. Anyone else?

I tried a mesh from an new smaller and simpler geometry (attached to this post). The output of the mesh conversion is now:

Is this what I should expect?
Are the unhandled elements bad?
Does the conversion work now because the geometry is smaller or simpler (I used a copy of the incompressible/icofoam/cavity example as starting point)?
Which tutorial should I copy to convert the mesh from my initial Post?

When I directly launch "icoFoam" after conversion, I get the following error message:

I get the same error message when I try to look at the mesh in paraFoam.

Is there something else I have to do before launching "icoFoam"?
Does the cavity tutorial simply not fit to my mesh?

Do you need any more information to help me? Just ask and I will provide it.

I expect it to be an effort of a few minutes for someone experienced to try my mesh. Finding a solution on my own yet took me weeks and will take me months. Any help is really appreciated.

XXLRay December 6, 2011 03:45

Is anybody out there?

wyldckat December 6, 2011 09:36

Greetings XXLRay,

I personally don't have time to test the mesh, but this should be self explanatory in one of your latter posts:
Code:

keyword patch0 is undefined in dictionary "/home/.../run/tutorials/incompressible/icoFoam/Cylinder/0/p::boundaryField"
Basically your new mesh has patch names different from the patches defined in the original tutorial case. You'll need to see the file "constant/polyMesh/boundary" to see the list of patches your new mesh has, then edit all variable files in the folder "0".

I suggest that you review the first tutorial (or even all 3 tutorials) on the User Guide to remember about boundaries and patches: http://www.openfoam.com/docs/user/cavity.php#x5-40002.1

As for «removing the "gmsh label"», the ".gmsh" files can sometimes be in text format, so editing the mesh ".gmsh" file with a text editor might be the way to go!

Best regards and good luck!
Bruno

Thanks a lot. I will try that.
