xoitx is on a distinguished road
Sloshing in a cylindrical tank(with baffles):
(linear oscillatory motion)
I was able to do everything up to the point of solving.
I ran the solver interDyMFoam in both parallel and in serial and it always stops at the same point.
I have searched a lot to solve this problem but I can't find the solution.
I think it has something to do with the fvSchmes file, I'm not sure.
The problem is I'm not good at the schemes part or coding.. so if you could kindly help me out it would be really great.
I've been stuck on this for 2 days now and I need to get out of this rut.
The error message I get after the solver stops is this

Code:
m > serial.log
#0  Foam::error::printStack(Foam::Ostream&) at ??:?
#1  Foam::sigFpe::sigHandler(int) at ??:?

used a .unv file (ideasunvtofoam) mesh seems to be fine.
checkMesh ran ok

I read somewhere that it is caused by dividing by 0.. but I can't find out where.. nor do I know any sort of coding to move forward.
Awaiting your reply,

Hi,

i usually get this error message when there is something wrong with boundary conditions. As an example:

When i set the volume fraction to zero at outlet for the water phase but initalize the water field around that boundary to be water with setFieldsDict this "dividing by zero" error occured. So check again your BC's and maybe even post them. Could be the error.

Good luck.

Hello Phoenix
My boundary conditions in polymesh file are:-

Quote:
2
(
body
{
type patch;
nFaces 11384;
startFace 234726;
}
walls
{
type wall;
nFaces 1140;
startFace 246110;
}
)
It's the same config for sloshing tack 3d in multiphase/interdymfoam tutorials

the u and p_rgh files are also similar:

U
Quote:
dimensions [0 1 -1 0 0 0 0];

internalField uniform (0 0 0);


boundaryField
{
body
{
type movingWallVelocity;
value uniform (0 0 0);
}

walls
{
type movingWallVelocity;
value uniform (0 0 0);
}
}
p_rgh
Quote:
dimensions [1 -1 -2 0 0 0 0];

internalField uniform 0;

boundaryField
{
body
{
type fixedFluxPressure;
}

walls
{
type fixedFluxPressure;
}
}
Is this what you were referring to by boundary conditions?
If so is there any error?
Thank you for your patience

In first time step you already have an extreme max Courant number. Therefore your timestep drops. Before the simulation exits, you have a time step of E-105. How do you define your motion?

Best regards,
Jan

I can see the Courant no. getting small.. but I thought only if courant number exceeds 1 it would be a problem. How do I solve the problem in this case?

Your initial timestep deltaT is way too big. Reduce it to something like 0.0001 or even 0.00001. When the Courant number allows it your timestep will get bigger by itself.
Decrease your maxAlphaCo to at least 0.2.
Can you post the output of checkMesh? The interFoam family is extremely picky about the mesh quality, especially non-orthogonality.
Have you checked if your case runs without dynamic mesh (staticFvMesh)?

Mesh OK.

End
No I haven't tried static mesh as there is no change in alpha at all times except when being moved(dynamic).. So there really isn't anything to calculate. Or am I wrong? :O
However, I guess I need a powerful computer for this?
Awaiting your reply
Sincerely

Hi

It seems that initial deltaT = 0.05 is the value of being set in controlDict.
How about trying to change the value of deltaT in controlDict.
Max courant number became 1341 when deltaT was 0.05. So i think it's better you set deltaT around 3.72856E-05(=0.05/1341).

Regards,
kkk

Would't that take forever to calculate?!! :OOoooOO

Hi,

can you please try to solve with interFoam solver? You have a pure tet mesh, not sure this can work with interDyMFoam.

And can you set in boundary conditions:

2
(
body
{
type wall;
nFaces 11384;
startFace 234726;
}
walls
{
type wall;
nFaces 1140;
startFace 246110;
}
)

Regards.

Edit: And try with a lower inital time step size. Sth like 0.0001 sec or so.

Greetings Phoenix
Just a heads up:
First few lines of interFoam:
It's still running though

Hi

I tried your case with interDyMFoam and found that the velociry became so high locally.
I think you have to modify the mesh.
To consider moving wall velocity, I also think around 1e-5 deltaT is valid.
I wonder if there is no way except increasing parallel number.
Anyway I am very interested in your case.
I will try to do somehow.

Regards,
kkk

This is why I almost gave up. I can't shift to 2D as it wouldn't account for the curvature in the 3rd dimension.

This is only the beginning, but a crucial first step.
I will be optimizing the baffle plates to reduce the sloshing effect.
There is a long journey ahead, but first I need to setup the case. :O
I'm trying a lot of ways to solve this!!
Anyway thanks for the support

Dear xoitx

I tried to modify mesh manually.
Then, calculation have done with hex mesh model.
There was no so high velocity locally.

I tried to do snappyHexMesh too. And now I am trying test running.
The progress of calculation is not bad.
It will take around 20 ~ 30 hours to run untill 15 sec with 60 cores.

I attache a case folder. You can create hex mesh model with it.
Please execute ./snappyHexAndOtherOperations then, it will do all things except running.
Sorry I couldn't upload stl model because of the file limitation.
You have to prepare it yourself or if you inform me some cloud url, then I will send you.

I hope this will help you.
Just give it try.

Regards,
kkk

Dear kkk
I have checked the files you gave me. Thank you so much for your time.
I had the .stl file from earlier which I'm using now. I tried to use snappyhexmesh before but I gave up as I had no control over it.I'm currently running the script you sent to the .stl file.
The pics you sent on top are modified versions?Did you remove the curved wall?
I can see why though.. It must have reduced a lot of computational time.. I guess.:P
