Hi guys,

Really need your assistance on openFoam issue.

I am working on vortex mechanism on fluid passing through a cylinder.

Currently I am stuck with solver that not matching to be used in my OF version (3.0.x)
I have existing case files that work in version OF 2.2.2

The issue :
is on keyword solver. It is undefined when using 3.0.x.

What the replacement of "motion solver: sixDoFRigidBodyMotion" from 2.2.2 version to 3.0.x
Thank you very much..

Below is the dynamicMesh file that OF 3.0 cannot define the sixDoFRigidBodyMotion solver that used to be running in 2.2.2 OF

The solver is in dynamicMesh

Hi,

as you get the information of the solver
Code:
eyword solver is undefined in dictionary  "C:/OpenFOAM/16.10/AMIRUL-3.0.x/run/tu                                                                                                                   torials/incompressible/pimpleDyMFoam/freeOscillationCylinder1/constant/dynamicMe                                                                                                                   shDict.sixDoFRigidBodyMotionCoeffs"
You should add the corresponding keyword into the sixDoFRigidBodyMotionCoeffs subdict in the dynamicMeshDict file. To make your life easier, you should go into a pimpleDyMFoam tutorial and check out how they set up the dictionary correctly.

Hi Tobi - thanks for the advices, currently I am going through the tutorial...
Hopefully will be more clearer.
