Dear OpenFOAM/foam-extend users,

I am trying to simulate a wind turbine in moving condition using ggi option in Foam-extend 4.0, I have found very good suggestions in this forum to run and solve my case in both serial and parallel. First of all thank you everyone for that. The following link has helped me so much to decompose my case to run in parallel. The link provides information about how to use manual decomposition.

DecomposePar utility (You can find the steps related to my project at the bottom of this thread)

Although I am successful in running simulation of wind turbine in parallel, it is taking same amount of time as in the case of serial. Hence I request you to share your knowledge to run the parallel simulation effectively.The reason for the above is of the following:

1. There are in total 7.4 million cells. But, 5.9 million cells in moving region.

2. The method in the above link helps to confine all the cells in moving region to a single processor. That means I will be having 1.5 million cells distributed to 11 processors and 5.9 million cells in 1 processor.

So far I have followed the following steps, which might be useful to understand my problem and also for the future users who would like to use ggi option.

1. Created structured mesh for both Bounding box and Wind turbine blades using CF Mesh.

2. I have used mergeMesh utility to merge the different mesh regions. And, copied this polymesh folder to the constant folder.

3. I am running RANS simulation, hence created k, epsilon, p, u, nut files in accordance with patch types.

4. A setBatchGgi file has been used for these face sets.

5. Manual decomposition method is used as suggested in the thread (directMapped + regionCoupling + parallel problems), and decomposePar -cellDist has been used to create the required cellDecomposition file in constant folder.

6. modify header (object entry) and the name of this file to decompDict, for instance

7. For instance: replace all '2' by '1' in decompDict file . Using vim comand: :%s/2/1/g for instance

8. Change the decomposeParDict file in order to use the manual method and specify the name of your file (i.e decompDict in this case)

9. Run setSet -batch setBatchGgi.

10. faceToZones -noFlipMaps.

11. This time running decomposePar using the decompDict file in constant folder.

12. pimpleDyMFoam -n 12 -parallel.

Only important files are attached since the case is too big

setBatchGgi.tar.gz

0.tar.gz

system.tar.gz

boundary.tar.gz

If I don't use manual method I get the following error

MPI_ABORT was invoked on rank 3 in communicator MPI_COMM_WORLD
with errorcode 1.

NOTE: invoking MPI_ABORT causes Open MPI to kill all MPI processes.
You may or may not see output from other processes, depending on
exactly when Open MPI kills them.

Awaiting for the suggestions, Thank you.
