does anybody know how to implement the activeBaffleVelocity b.c. which "dynamically combines cyclic and wall patches so that the flow through the patch can be controlled e.g. by pressure drop".

Does exist any example?

thanks

Hi Marco,

Did you ever find out how this works?

Cheers,
Greg

Hi Marco,

I want to use activeBaffleVelocity condition for one of my simulations. For the moment, I can not resolve the bugs.

As you have also some problems with this kind of condition. Have you found any alternative solution that could replace it?

Thank you very much!!

Bascud is on a distinguished road
Hello everyone,

i am an amateur and I don't get the boundary condition 'activeBaffleVelocity' to work. I hope you can help me. I am trying to simulate a pump with two pistons and three check valves. One in front of of the first pumping chamber, second in the middle of the two chambers, and the third after the second chamber.

I created Baffles at the position, where the checkvalves should be and defined them as 'type cyclic'. When I use the bc activeBaffleVelocity in the U file, I get an error message:
'inconsistent patch and patchField types for
patch type cyclic and patchField type activeBaffleVelocity'

Here my code:

In this code i am just trying to get valve12 to work.

I hope someone can give some advice

Thanks and best regards.

I created Baffles at the position, where the checkvalves should be and defined them as 'type cyclic'. When I use the bc activeBaffleVelocity in the U file, I get an error message:
'inconsistent patch and patchField types for
patch type cyclic and patchField type activeBaffleVelocity'

Here my code:

// ************************************************************************* //
In this code i am just trying to get valve12 to work.

I hope someone can give some advice

Thanks and best regards.
Hello everyone,

this is a pretty old thread, but the only one, I could find adressing the `activeBaffleVelocity` or `activePressureForceBaffleVelocityFvPatchVectorFiel d`patches.


I've been trying to use this patch by specifying:
* polyMesh/boundary -> type cyclic;
* 0/U -> type activePressureForceBaffleVelocity
* 0/otherFiles -> type cyclic;
but always end up with the error message:

```
--> FOAM FATAL IO ERROR:
inconsistent patch and patchField types for
patch type cyclic and patchField type activePressureForceBaffleVelocity
```

Can anyone provide me some hint on how to use this patch ?
Thanks a lot in advance

I tested the code and repeated your errors. It works though if I change to other patchField type such as fanPressureJump (still cyclic patch). Though this is just for a testing purpose, it indicates that there might be a bug in the current version (openfoam 7), unfortunately.

Thanks a lot, Charles!
In the meantime, I also made some progress. I found (by using `foamInfo activePressure`) a tutorial case:
https://develop.openfoam.com/Develop...nWithObstacles
(or the corresponding foundation version)



Actually, it took me a while to undestand how to prepare the mesh. One has to use the PDRMesh tool, which will generate a duplice patch (the faces are duplicated), which can be defined twice, once as a wall and once as a cyclic patch.

So it is a bit difficult to use with arbitrary imported meshes, but I managed to get it run with blockMesh as described in the tutorial.

Best regards

Hi Stephan,

That's very interesting as fanPressureJump uses the same concept, i.e. building a wall patch and a cyclic patch on the same surface with createBaffles.

Attached is my investigation progress. Similar to the tutorial, 3 patches are created which are basically from the same face set. 2 of them are cyclic type patches (master and slave), and one is wall type patch. The wall type patch is consistent with activeBaffleVelocity, but not the cyclic patch.

The model can run without error. But the result is difficult to explain. Free feel to make changes to make it correct.

In order to run the model, one needs to follow 3 steps below.
1. ./Allrun
2. change constant/polyMesh/boundary (by copying the file boundary in the case folder, which adds a new patch, the third patch.)
3. pimpleFoam

Please review and comments.
