Hello all,

I am simulating a solid-fluid interaction case and I wanted to write the data associated with solid body motion like angular velocity and center of mass. But, the option "reportToFile" is not writing any output (following explanations in https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/P...onSolverFvMesh).

I am using OpenFoam 3.0.1 and sixDoFRigidBodyMotion in dynamicMeshDict as follows:

Code:

Hello Behazad,
I have the same problem with the option "reportToFile" .

Did you solve it?

Thanks

check the log file,
then you can see angular velocity and center of mass right away.

This doesn't work for sixDoF library. It only works on rigidBody library.
I have the same problem.

Can you possibly try this in a newer version? For me, the reportToFile works in OpenFOAM 6. I remember that I had the same problem and it might have been a version issue but I can't recall exactly.

Hey there!

I am trying with version 6 and have the same problem. My dynamicMeshDict uses dynamicMotionSolverFvMesh as dynamicFvMesh and the used motionSolver is rigidBodyMotion.

Hope someone can shed a light in this matter!

Bruno

Can you upload the relevant files and the output of the log?
