Coupled solid boundary layers
 
Hi all,

So I have two solid plates stacked on top of each other. I have defined an inlet and outlet for both the solids (with the four bounding sides as walls). How do I pair the bottom outlet of my top plate to the top inlet patch of the bottom plate?

Essentially I want the top of the bottom layer to take its values from the bottom of the top plate. Is there anyway to do this? I am using chtMultiRegionFoam.

Hi!


You can do an AMI interface by defining something like this in snappyHexMesh:
Quote:

solid1-to-solid2
{
level $refinementSurface;
patchInfo
{
sampleRegion air;
samplePatch solid2-to-solid1 ;
type mappedWall;
sampleMode nearestPatchFaceAMI;
offsetMode uniform;
offset (0 0 0);
}
}
