Hello,

I want to run a chtMultiRegionFoam case in parallel. To decompose this case im using

Quote:
decomposePar -allRegions
and everything is fine, if i want to split my case to 4 processes like in the tutorials. Now I want to change the number of subdomains like this:

Code:

If I run now decomposePar -alllRegions I get only 4 subdomains per region and there isn't an error message in the log file.

My decomposeParDict is located in the system folder of the case like in the tutorials of this solver.

Can anybody tell me what I'm missing?
Thanks a lot.

Hello Stefan,

I believe your case has three regions i.e. fluid1, fluid2 and solid. In order for your decomposeparDict file to work correctly you need to make sure that the contents of decomposeparDict in system/decomposeparDict are the same as the ones in the subfolders i.e. system/fluid1/decomposeparDict , system/fluid2/decomposeparDict and system/solid/decomposeparDict. So, whenever you change the decomposeparDict file in system/decomposeparDict, you can just copy the file and paste it in the sub-folders (system/<region name>/).

Hope that helps!
