Hello everyone,


I have been trying to mesh a geometry for the problem , "Cross flow over cylinder" in 2D.

After meshing i used refineMeshDict facility to refine more around cylinder.

But, I have been getting bad mesh at the intersections where two neighbouring blocks meet. Following is the warning it is showing:

Code:
FOAM Warning : 
    From function void Foam::cellCuts::setFromCellCutter(const Foam::cellLooper&, const Foam::List<Foam::refineCell>&)
    in file meshCut/cellCuts/cellCuts.C at line 2393
    Found loop on cell 68422 that resulted in an unexpected bad cut.
    Suggestions:
      - Turn on the debug switch for 'cellCuts' to get geometry files that identify this cell.
      - Also keep in mind to check the defined reference directions, as these are most likely the origin of the problem.
Here is the refinemeshdict

Code:
set             c0;

coordinateSystem global;

globalCoeffs
{
    tan1            (1 1 0);
    tan2            (-1 1 0);
}

directions      ( tan1 tan2 );

useHexTopology  yes;

geometricCut    no;

writeMesh       no;
ToposetDict1
Code:
actions
(
    {
        name    c0;
        type    cellSet;
        action  new;
        source  cylinderAnnulusToCell;
        sourceInfo
        {
        p1 (0 0 -0.05);
        outerRadius 0.015;
        p2 (0 0 0.05);
        innerRadius 0.001;
        }
    }
);
TopoSetDict 2
Code:
actions
(
    {
        name    c0;
        type    cellSet;
        action  new;
        source  cylinderAnnulusToCell;
        sourceInfo
        {
        p1 (0 0 -0.05);
        outerRadius 0.011;
        p2 (0 0 0.05);
        innerRadius 0.005;
        }
    }
);

The bad cut cells can be seen in following pics.
