Hi,
I am new in openFoam. I am solving sixdofrigidbodymotion for tandem arrangement of cylinder. I created the cylinders in gmsh and others in blockMessh. But when I try to setFields and setting topology only happens for one cylinder. I have tried everything but got nothing. Please help!!!
I am attaching my case here.

Can you describe the Problem in order that one does not have to download the files, run and look at the results?

This is a bit of work and probably this is the reason you did not get any answer yet

If you can pose your Problem in a way that one understands quickly what is going wrong the probabilty to get an answer is much higher than in the way you did it.

I am doing an OpenFoam case with two cylinders in tandem arrangement with overset mesh- a background mesh, one refinement zone and two cylinder mesh. I am using overPimpleDyMFoam but got this error: Attempt to cast type dynamicOversetFvMesh to type dynamicMotionSolverFvMesh.

This is my dynamicMeshDict:

Can you sketch the case you are trying to solve

Did you have a look at this tutorial. There are two zones specified

Are the cylinders suposed to move independently from each other

No, they are rigidly connected.

Can you provide a zipped file which contains your case together with an allrun script to reproduce the error

It is the same case. Only I made two cylinders separately with blockMesh.

Hello what kind of OF version are you using?


I try to run the scripts with OF2012 and there are a lot of errors thrown. Like in all/ the system/blockMeshDict is missing ...
you run in the file run_mesh.sh the command blockMesh in the folder all and no blockMesh dict is present...




So I'm wondering if you have checked the script before you submitted it...

I have the same version of OpenFoam. I have not encountered the blockMeshDict problem. I run the command: "sh run_all.sh" in the moving cylinder directory not inside the all directory.

my version is the same





I'm wounder in your shell script run_meh.sh you have:


Code:

foamCleanTutorials

cd cylinder1
blockMesh | tee log.blockMesh
cd ..

cd cylinder2
blockMesh | tee log.blockMesh
cd ..

cd refinementZone
blockMesh | tee log.blockMesh
cd ..

cd all
blockMesh | tee log.blockMesh
so you run blockMesh in the directory all. But if no blockMeshDict is in all/system how it is possible you do not get any error.

Ooops!! My bad. I think some my files have gone missing while downloading. I will re-upload the case.

Here is the case file. I hope this time there will be no problem.

If you comment out the function object



Code:



sixDoFRigidBodyState
    {
        type           sixDoFRigidBodyState;
        libs           ("libsixDoFRigidBodyState.so");
        angleFormat    degrees;
    }

the simulation runs.


The problem is that the sixDoFRigidBodyState tries a dynamic cast in the write() function:


Code:

const dynamicMotionSolverFvMesh& mesh =
 
         refCast<const dynamicMotionSolverFvMesh>(obr_);

I.E. it tries to cast a dynamicOversetFvMesh to a dynamicMotionSolverFvMesh.



dynamicMotionSolverFvMesh is derived from dynamicFvMesh


dynamicOversetFvMesh is derived from dynamicMotionSolverListFvMesh


dynamicMotionSolverListFvMesh is derived from dynamicFvMesh


apparently this side cast does not work
