Exclamation GGI interpolation issues with foam-extend3.2

Hi there, you helpful lot
I am trying to solve a problem regarding my FSI case based on the BeamInCrossFlow. I am using foam-extend 3.2.
I have 2 meshes that I created via a third software. I made them into msh files and converted them for OpenFOAM. All looks fine in ParaView apart from the nodes of the two meshes not matching on the interface. However, I seem to have issues with GGI, or so says the log file of the fsi solver:

Starting time loop

Creating beamReport function object.
History point ID: 0
History point coordinates: (0 0 0)
Reference point coordinates: (0.45 0.15 -0.15)
Seting inlet velocity
Umax = 0.1
Time = 0.5

I know this topic came up on another thread under HronTurekFsi3 foam-extend3.1, but it doesn't apply to me, as I have imported a mesh that hasn't been created using blockMesh.

Could anyone tell me how to identify the problem and how to solve it?
I am fairly new to OpenFOAM, so I am totally lost.

Any help would be much appreaciated.


Kind regards

Hello,


I have the exact same problem, my fluid and solid meshes are from snappyHexMesh. Could you please tell me if you managed to resolve this issue?

This problem occurs due to gap between fluid-solid interface. Open both Fluid and solid in Paraview by command
paraFoam -nativeReader

(in fluid folder)

ans see whether there is a gap between the fuid and solid surface.
If gap is found edit the geometry.

Thank you
