AndyR is on a distinguished road
I am finding that if I use periodic boundary conditions I have some issues running in parallel. I can run the problem, converge it, post process it, and finally save the cas and dat files.

However, when I read those files in again, I need to delete the mesh interfaces before I can do anything at all with my solution.
I then rebuild them, and I can keep working.

It is not that much work, but annoying.

I do get a warning about not being able to create a surface from sliding interface zone. Which is odd, in that I dont think I have any sliding interfaces.

Has anyone else experienced this??

I am using 13.0.0 but I think I experienced a similar problem in v12.

Any advice or help is appreciated

- Andy
