Hello,

My simulation is about flow over NACA 0015 airfoil. I made a blockMesh and it works well. Then I use snappyHexMesh for the airoil. If only "castellatedMesh" is turned on, it works pretty well (attached a picture of it).

However, when I turn on "snap", it gets stuck with the following warning:

I got the exact same problem... I thought it was because my geometry was complex but yours seems pretty simple. Did you figure out what was going wrong?

Hello all,
I have the same problem using SnappyHexMesh on OpenFOAM v2012.


But if I use SnappyHexMesh on OF240, it will do the snap but it will give errors in the end. Also the checkMesh gives errors.

Any ideas?
Thank you.

Hello all,
after a long trial and error strategy, finally I solved my problem.


It turns out that in my case it was a problem of the boundaries.
I picked an original 2D wave flume case and transformed it into a 3D.

So instead of using empty boundaries in the front and back, I am using no slip, and finally I could do the SHM without errors!


I hope this helps!
