Dear Foamers,
A cylinder fast moving in water with 500 m/s. We would like to see the cavity around cylinder. 1. Can we solve this problem with overPimpleDyMFoam? 2. Do we need to use Volume Of Fluid (VOF) Technic? 3. Can we use alpha.water with overPimpleDyMFoam? Any answer will be appreciated. Thanks & regards.

Can we use Volume of Fluid (VoF) Technique with overPimpleDyMFoam solver?

No you can't, you need to use overInterDyMFoam, which is the overset version of interFoam (VOF)
I'm not sure it can handle cavitation though. There is a specific solver for this: cavitatingFoam. But it doesn't have an overset version. Yann

Thank you very much Yann.
Can we use 6DOF with overInterDyMFoam? Can we use PISO with overInterDyMFoam?

Hi Senel,
Yes you can use both. Have a look at the floatinBody tutorial to have an example of 6DoF with overInterDyMFoam. Regards, Yann

Hi Yann,
Thank you for your reply. I tried floating object that you have pointed and get the following error.

I use Windows.
There is other floatingobject case without 6DOF. I dont face the error above for that one without 6DOF. Only the case including 6DOF gives this error.

The error is due to the #codeStream function defined in background/constant/dynamicMeshDict.
This function is used to compute the moment of inertia of the object according to the dimensions Lx, Ly, Lz and mass defined beforehand. You get this error because codeStream dynamically compile some code to compute these values and you are not allowed to compile code with the Windows version. I guess you are using the crosscompiled windows binaries (mingw) ? However, you don't have to use the dynamic code function. You can remove it and compute the moment of inertia yourself in order to run the tutorial with your current setup. Cheers, Yann

I guess I use mingw: OpenFOAMMSDOSPrompt.bat
I deleted the block: /* momentOfInertia #codeStream { ... ... } */ but same error occurred. I deleted dynamicMeshDict file and run overInterDyMFoam solver again, the result was same. I tried interFoam solver to run, same error This code should not be executed by someone with administrator rights for security reasons.

with the interFoam solver run, the error is different :
Unknown asymetric matrix solver type PCG.

You get this error because there is dynamic code elsewhere in the case.
In the background/system/controlDict, you have to delete the coded function object alphaVol. By the way, you can't delete the momentOfInertia block in dynamicMeshDict because the sixDoF model needs the moment of inertia of the object to compute its displacement. You have to define it using this syntax: Code:
momentOfInertia (Ix Iy Iz);

Yes, I put momentOfInertia(Ix Iy Iz);
I did what you suggested. It worked for 45 minutes but failed somehow. I attached the console messages. I would appriciate if you can suggest me to correct this. Other question, there are very big numbers of angular velocity inside the messages. How did I get this? I have checked the input files and could not see any velocity (linear or angular) values.

So maybe the wrong moment of inertia? What values did you use? Have you modified other parameters? It seems you did not post the log files so I cannot really help more than this for now. Yann

I used:
momentOfInertia(4.45E16 4.45E16 2.25E16); It seems attachment is lost. Let me paste in 3 parts.

Hi,
how did you compute your moment of inertia? The values you used seem quite low. I end up with these values: Code:
momentOfInertia (0.2924544 0.2924544 0.1548288); Cheers, Yann

I've taken the dimensions of the floatingobject from paraview as 0.24 mm x 0.24 mm x 0.4 mm and draw a solid in CATIA. Now I remember I forget to change the density I think the default density is 1000 kg/m3 which is the same with water. Maybe thats the reason I end up with a very small moment values.

OK I get it now. The dimensions of the object are in meters and not millimeters: 0.24m x0.24m x 0.4m.
This is why you get very small inertia values, in addition to the wrong density. By the way, both dimensions and density of the object are specified in the dynamicMeshDict. It should run fine with the correct values. Yann

Rep Power: 3 
Dear Yann,
It worked fine. Thank you very much for your time and effort. You are very helpful. Using 0.24m x 0.24m x 0.4m and 700 kg/m3, I found same moment of inertia. Floatingobject is very nice application of: Dynamic mesh Overset mesh 6DOF Volume of Fluid (VoF) in this case water and water vapor PISO My application is a cylinder inside water. The initial velocity is 500 m/s. I recently experienced overInterDyMFoam and interPhaseChangeDyMFoam. But I am not sure wich solver is more suitable for my cylinder application. Any suggestion is welcome. Thx & Regards, Senel
