Hey guys. I'm using openfoam230 to simulate a plunging airfoil. The simulation runs perfectly fine without the forceCoeffs function. The moment I add the function, it crashes. I get different error messages for different number of cores. Please help me out. For a certain case I managed to run the simulation for 3 cores. It crashed for all other choices including 1 core. I'm unable to figure out what is causing this error.

I'm giving the link to my github account where the case file exists exactly as I tried to run it. https://github.com/pruthvi1991/pimpl.../onemeterplate

I also have this problem when I put binData in the controlDict when running pimpleDyMFoam.
binData works fine in the static cases where pimpleFoam is used.
Have you solved this problem?

Hello kai,

Which version of OpenFOAM are you using? This error is a bug fixed by a commit. If you have 2.3.X you should be fine. Just update your OpenFOAM if its older. Let me know if the bug persists.

Thanks,
Pru.
