Velocity "ripples" at AMI
1 Attachment(s)
I'm getting what looks like ripples at the AMI in my 2D mesh after using snappyHexMesh. The meshing dicts are based on those by another forum member Boloar. When I mesh that case, there is no rippling, but when I insert my own geometry (including a smaller cylinder as the AMI surface), I get these ripples. I have meshed with many different refinement levels, iteration numbers, etc., but still the same. Anyone have an idea on what parameter would cause these ripples?

I have seen this in my cases as well. I think it arises due to interpolation errors at the AMI interface. I am not sure, however, if it's a problem with the AMI itself or perhaps the way paraview visualises the data?

Yeah, I think it's just ParaView's interpolation. If you turn interpolation off and use cell values it looks uniform.
