Hello, everyone, I hope you are having a lovely day.
I am new to preCICE and have some experience in openFOAM. I am trying to simulate a simple case of a 2D falling wedge (similar to this) using FSI to couple openFOAM and calculix to also assess the deformation along the structure besides the wedge motion itself. In a first try using a box intead of a wedge, the following error appeared:
From void adapterInfo(std::__cxx11::string, std::__cxx11::string) in file Utilities.C at line 50 Error (deferred - will exit later) in the preCICE adapter: failed lookup of cellDisplacement (objectRegistry region0) available objects of type volVectorField: 2(Force U)
Then, looking up and trying to understand what is going on, I found out that the problem (so far) is in the dynamic mesh dict, where I was using the sixDoFRigidBodyMotionSolver. In this case, I was wondering if preCICE can be used for my case and, if it can, what can I do to run it? Is there an alternative for this solver where I can input mass and initial velocity and it can work in preCICE? I’ve seen topics related to the subject, but none of them could help a beginner like me.
Thank you, any assistance would be gladly appreciated.
