Hi folks,

actually I try to simulate a 2D VAWT, but I'm facing a problem. Thats why I used this geometry with different boundary conditions and imported it into the mixerVesselAMI2D tutorial. I renamed all boundaries so that they are the same as in the tutorial.

I guess that there is some problem with the AMI interface?

Here is the error message:
Code:

Ok, I got help from the Pointwise Service.

Before running the case following action has to be executed
renumberMesh -overwrite
