What is the meaning of Code: ```AMI: Patch source sum(weights) min/max/average = 0, 1.414076, 0.9999949 AMI: Patch target sum(weights) min/max/average = 0, 1.182242, 0.992691``` in the log-file? Best

 January 16, 2016, 07:55 #3 Member   Join Date: May 2015 Posts: 68 Rep Power: 7 Thank you! So since 1 is the optimal value I think mine are quite o.k., aren't they? Code: ```AMI: Patch source sum(weights) min/max/average = 0, 1.414076, 0.9999949 AMI: Patch target sum(weights) min/max/average = 0, 1.182242, 0.992691```

Minimum and maximum weights ideally should be 1 in the case of cyclicAMI. (I can't understand why the maximum weight is greater than 1.) You might want to read the release note if you use cyclicAMI (lowWeightCorrection option): http://www.openfoam.org/version2.3.0/ami.php Hope this helps, Fumiya __________________ [Personal]Blog: https://caefn.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/FumiyaNozaki SlideShare: http://www.slideshare.net/fumiyanozaki96
