Default Problems with reconstructPar after run interDyMFoam

Hello all,
that's maybe a kind of newbie problem, but I found no way to handle it.

I'm working on a interDyMFoam case. The case is running fine.

The Problem is only the reconstruction of the case.
I used: decomposePar -> "run the case" -> reconstructPar
I tried metis/ simpel / hierarchical method and there is no difference.

Thanks in advance!

The error message is:

Create time

Create mesh for time = 0

Time = 0.02

cannot open file

file: /home/geiger/OpenFOAM/geiger-1.6/run/eigen/dynmesh/tes/processor0/0.02/polyMesh/pointProcAddressing at line 0.

From function regIOobject::readStream()
in file db/regIOobject/regIOobjectRead.C at line 62.

FOAM exiting

try these commands


Dynamic meshes always save the current mesh in each time stept just because it may change by time. So, reconstructParMesh is necessary to reconstruct the the mesh in each region, reconstructPar is necessary to to put all the regions together to one mesh.

Hope this helps!

Best regards!

Hi Lars,
thanks for your quick reply and your help.

There is only a small problem left.
The reconstructParMesh command only run for one timestep.
Is there maybe more easy to handle way?

Kind regards!

hallo friedrich,

its a bit too late now, but for others it might be helpful.
in that case i make loop in the shell that looks like this.
(X=number of processors -1; TIME=wanted time folder)
if you want to reconstruct a lot of time folders, you can generate a second loop for TIME inside the first.

for i in `seq 0 X`; do
cp processor${i}/0/polyMesh/pointProcAddressing.gz processor${i}/TIME/polyMesh/
cp processor${i}/0/polyMesh/faceProcAddressing.gz processor${i}/TIME/polyMesh/
cp processor${i}/0/polyMesh/cellProcAddressing.gz processor${i}/TIME/polyMesh/
cp processor${i}/0/polyMesh/boundaryProcAddressing.gz processor${i}/TIME/polyMesh/
