CLOSED : I am sorry I was running an old version of the tutorial from 16.06. The new syntax is :

Quote:
dynamicFvMesh dynamicMotionSolverFvMesh;

motionSolverLibs ("libfvMotionSolvers.so");

motionSolver solidBody;

cellZone innerCylinderSmall;

solidBodyMotionFunction rotatingMotion;

origin (0 0 0);
axis (0 1 0);
omega 158; // rad/s

Dear Foamer,

I am trying to run the propeller test case (pimpleDyMFoam solver) but it seems that dynamicFvMesh has changed. When you try to run the solver you get :

Quote:
[3] --> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
[3] Unknown dynamicFvMesh type solidBodyMotionFvMesh

Valid dynamicFvMesh types are :

9
(
dynamicInkJetFvMesh
dynamicMotionSolverFvMesh
dynamicMotionSolverListFvMesh
dynamicMotionSolverTopoFvMesh
dynamicMultiMotionSolverFvMesh
dynamicRefineFvMesh
movingConeTopoFvMesh
rawTopoChangerFvMesh
staticFvMesh
So the error message is clear but I am not able to find the right syntax under of1706. I tried to read the user guide but i can't figured out what is the right way to do this.

Thanks a lot for your help,

Fauster

Hello I may try to run the same case.

I get the error as well and tried to use your code, but I can't make it work.

Can someone help?

Code:
dynamicFvMesh   dynamicMotionSolverFvMesh;

motionSolverLibs ( "libfvMotionSolvers.so" );

motionSolver solidBody;

solidBodyMotionFvMeshCoeffs
{
    cellZone        innerCylinderSmall;

    solidBodyMotionFunction  rotatingMotion;
    rotatingMotionCoeffs
    {
        origin      (0 0 0);
        axis        (0 1 0);
        omega       158; // rad/s
    }
}
I attached the error code

I think that is because you have defined the solidBodyMotionFunction inside solidBodyMotioNFvMeshCoeffs. Specify it in a similar format as given by Fauster.

The code will look like this in that case :
Code:
dynamicFvMesh   dynamicMotionSolverFvMesh;

motionSolverLibs ( "libfvMotionSolvers.so" );

motionSolver solidBody;

cellZone        innerCylinderSmall;

solidBodyMotionFunction  rotatingMotion;
  

rotatingMotionCoeffs
    {
        origin      (0 0 0);
        axis        (0 1 0);
        omega       158; // rad/s
    }
P.S Eventhough the post is an year old, i thought it might help someone who encounters the same issue.
