Hi,
I've succesfully completed the external flow research of an aircraft, rotors off, under all conditions I need. Results look meaningful. Wanting now to progress to a rotors on, MRF simulation, I'm having issues with snappyHexMesh and I'm starting to run out of things to try. First I had a very low quality mesh, but after tweaking surface and region refinement variables I got a good snap. I sometimes got a 'Killed' message but changing maxLocalCells and maxGlobalCells fixed that issue. Now, however, I'm stuck at layers. I have tried changing the featureAngle, the amount of layers, the layer thicknesses, maxLocalCells and maxGlobalCells, .. It always results in the following error (full log later) Code:
truncateDisplacement : Unextruded 3 faces due to nonconsecutive vertices being extruded. truncateDisplacement : Unextruded 7 faces due to stringed edges with inconsistent extrusion. truncateDisplacement : Unextruded 0 faces due to nonconsecutive vertices being extruded. truncateDisplacement : Unextruded 0 faces due to stringed edges with inconsistent extrusion. Setting up information for layer truncation ... Killed Below is my snappyHexMeshDict, under that is the full sHM log. Cheers! I hope someone can help me further cause I'm at a bit of a loss. I'm glad I got a good snap, now just have to get the next part. Code:

Just bottom part of the sHM log as it is way to long for this forum..
