Hello all,
I'm currently trying to build a model for an oscillating cylinder creating vortex shedding in a fluid flow. I've used dynamicMeshDict along with the blockMesh to create a moving mesh to follow the object; however, when I run decomposePar on the model, I get the following error:

Code:
--> FOAM FATAL IO ERROR: 
Unknown patchField type oscillatingDisplacement for patch type wall

Valid patchField types are :

16
(
calculated
cyclic
empty
fixedValue
generic
global
mixed
oscillatingFixedValue
processor
slip
symmetryPlane
timeVaryingUniformFixedValue
uniformFixedValue
value
wedge
zeroGradient
)


file: /home/pwt/foam/foam-extend-4.0/tutorials/incompressible/pimpleDyMFoam/rotatingMovingCylinder/0/pointDisplacement::boundaryField::cylinder from line 44 to line 47.

    From function PointPatchField<PatchField, Mesh, PointPatch, MatrixType, Type>::New(const PointPatch&, const DimensionedField<Type, Mesh>&, const dictionary&)
    in file /home/pwt/foam/foam-extend-4.0/src/foam/lnInclude/newPointPatchField.C at line 220.

FOAM exiting
from the documentation I've read, oscillatingDisplacement is a valid patchfield type and necessary for creating the motion of the cylinder. Anyone know why I can't decompose this model for computation?
