hello, everyone,

I am new to openFOAM and I'm trying to simulate the surface waves induced by rotating propeller underwater.

With reference to the tutorials of propeller in pimpleDyMFoam and DTCHull in interDyMFoam, I made my case for simulation in the attachment.

After the processes of snappyHexMesh and createPatch, it works fine while running "moveDynamicMesh". However, when I ran the interDyMFoam, the following mistake occured:
Create time

Create mesh for time = 0

Selecting dynamicFvMesh solidBodyMotionFvMesh
Selecting solid-body motion function rotatingMotion
Applying solid body motion to cellZone innerCylinderSmall

PIMPLE: Operating solver in PISO mode

Reading field p_rgh

AMI: Creating addressing and weights between 23324 source faces and 46992 target faces
AMI: Patch source sum(weights) min/max/average = 0.779747, 1.27884, 1.00016
AMI: Patch target sum(weights) min/max/average = 0, 1.02289, 0.50395

Many thanks for all the help, I'm looking forward to it!!
