snappyhexmesh remove blockmesh geometry
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi there,

i have a small question again. since i'm working just once per week on openfoam and snappyhexmesh, you've got to excuse, that these questions are sometimes a little bit stupid.

here we go:

i have created a geometry via snappyhexmesh, but the geometry or the faces from the blockmesh geometry do not seem to be removed. how do i do that? is this a setting in the snappyhexmeshdict?

Thank you,

PR

okay, i think i,ve got the right settings in the snappyhexmeshdict now, but i get a floating point exception now after 2 timesteps.. can anybody help me?
i have to finish this study in a few weeks :eek:

Hi Philipp,

I'm constantly facing very similar problem - snappy blows out during layer addition phase when moving mesh using displacement scaling. Usually I get something like

Moving mesh using displacement scaling : min:0.5625 max:1
[3] #0 Foam::error::printStack(Foam::Ostream&) in "/opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.3.x/platforms/linux64Gcc48DPOpt/lib/libOpenFOAM.so"
[3] #1 Foam::sigFpe::sigHandler(int) in "/opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.3.x/platforms/linux64Gcc48DPOpt/lib/libOpenFOAM.so"
[3] #2
[3] at sigaction.c:0
...

So far the only thing that helped me was:
1) using different snappyHexMeshDict for snap and addLayers phases,
2) decreasing the featureAngle and/or
3) increasing number of smoothing iterations, e.g.
nSmoothSurfaceNormals 50;
nSmoothNormals 30;
nSmoothThickness 50;
4) AND increasing the error reduction e.g.
errorReduction 0.9;

Good luck.
