Hi All,
I am just trying to catch: how to simulate frozen rotor with translation zone in 2D case (see schematic picture below).

When I am solving 2D case, where rotation axes is normal to the xy-plane, there are not problem with seting up with MRFZones dictionary.

My questions are:
1) How to set up case (see picture) with translation zone?
2) What boundary conditions should I use at the boundaries (cyclic, cyclicGGI ...)

This topic is more than 3 years old... Does anyone know how to solve this?

I installed OF-1.6ext and tried with cyclicGgi but I don't know where to start. Is there a simpler solution?

Please help!
