Butterfly Wind Vector

Hi everyone,

I’m a researcher from KADK and I’m testing Butterfly for a comparison between CFD tools.

I’m trying to rotate wind vector, but after a certain angle (approximately near 30° clockwise) it doesn’t run. SnappyHexMesh gives this error:

  1. Solution exception:
    --> snappyHexMesh Failed!
    --> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
    Point (10 40 7.5) is not inside the mesh or on a face or edge.
    Bounding box of the mesh:(-14.8394 -70.31135 0) (62.35048 36.99024 15)

From function static Foam::labelList Foam::refinementParameters::findCells(bool, const Foam::polyMesh&, const pointField&)
in file snappyHexMeshDriver/refinementParameters/refinementParameters.C at line 206.

FOAM exiting

There’s anyone that knows how to solve this?

In attachment the screenshot, gh definition and 3dm file.

Thanks in advance,

Federico

Based on the error, and without looking to your model, you need to set the locationInMesh to a point inside the domain. It’s currently outside the bounding box.

Hi Mostapha,

thank you very much, I didn’t check the meshing parameters component.
