Default Skew factor of decomposeParDict

Dear all,

Can anyone tell me which value to introduce in "delta" in decomposeParDict? Is it the cell skew factor given while doing "checkMesh"? Otherwise, what is it?
I am doing simulations in a 2D airfoil and while running them in parallel mode I get instabilities and the solution for Cl & Cd starts to diverge.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Josť,

Do you have any info on that "delta" parameter? I think it is a global tolerance for the subdomain geometry but I'm not sure... Can anyone explain its signification?

Thank you!
