Hello everyone,
I am trying to simulate a simple 2D turbine that is a flow driven motion. I am using 6DoF as motion solver and cyclicAMI boundary condition for rotating domain.


As soon as I keep my front and back side of rotor as 'walls' after doing little calculations it displays an error - "Unable to set source and target faces"

And when I keep my front side as wall and back side as empty, it completes its calculation but as soon as I run the case in paraView, the mesh inside circular region starts distorting and finally after little time the back side just converges in front side.

I think that setting back side as 'empty' would be a wrong boundary condition. I intend to set back side as 'wall'.
I am using OF4.1 and linux 16.04
Here is case file

Can anyone please help me in this case.
