Hey,
Using the icoFsiElasticNonLinULSolidFoam solver to simulate beam deformation due to some kind of fluid (resin) I get the following problem with complex eigenValues. Code:

I think that no one find a solution for this problem... I'm also searching for solution but without success. foamextend is not wellsupported by community.

Yes, actually I found my problem. It was due to a false numbering of the blocks with hex (). The User's Guide says: Quote:
Hope, it helps for you..

hi
yes ,i have this problem yet i am using icofsinonlinulsolidfoam sover from foamextend 3.1 when i run my case with geometry scale of 200 and time step of 0.01 i dont have this problem but when i run my case with geometry scale of 1 and time step of 0.000001 this problem occur and stop my solution . courant number during solution is low. myfsi.log file

Hi Rasool,
sorry for the late answer. However, I assume that this problem occurs at your case because you're using a third party mesh generation tool. The solver icofsinonlinulsolidfoam needs a 1:1 face match between the fluid and the solid patch. I'm pretty sure that your mesh isn't considering this fact. Try using blockMesh for your geometry I hope your geometry isn't that complicated And please let me know if this is working for you.
