|0001205||OpenFOAM||[All Projects] Bug||public||2014-03-04 11:01||2016-02-03 21:25|
|Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0001205: foamyHexMeshBackgroundMesh is not compilied with root ./Allwmake|
|Description||The application foamyHexMeshBackgroundMesh is not compiling. This is an important application, because it is needed in order to user the new meshing tool foamyHexMesh in parallel.|
The root ./Allwmake is not compliging the application, because it has been commented out in the file OpenFOAM-2.3.x/applications/utilities/mesh/generation/foamyHexMesh/Allwmake. Manual compile with wmake foamyHexMeshBackgroundMesh fails with errors related to CGAL.
|Steps To Reproduce||cd OpenFOAM-2.3.x|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|You can run in parallel by just decomposing an initial blockMesh. See the foamyHexMesh mixerVessel tutorial.|
Concerning the problem compiling foamyHexMesh, it does compile if CGAL was successfully built. You should make sure CGAL is properly built first. Make sure you have the required system libraries, and development packages (for example mpfr and mpfr-devel or equivalent for your distribution).
Once you have built CGAL, try to build foamyHexMesh again, and it should work fine.
mattijs: I thought this application was supposed to create the constant/backgroundMeshDecomposition, which the blockMesh is using (blockMesh -region backgroundMeshDecomposition). This region is already present in the tutorials, but for a clean case it has to be created.
albertop: I have no trouble compiling foamyHexMesh, this is a different application. And CGAL is compiling just fine.
CGAL headers in /home/zordiack/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.3.x/platforms/linux64Clang/CGAL-4.3/include
CGAL libs in /home/zordiack/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.3.x/platforms/linux64Clang/CGAL-4.3/lib
Question: Is it worth while updating the source code for "foamyHexMeshBackgroundMesh" to be compatible with the remaining "foamy*" source code?
Because as far as I can figure out, this utility "foamyHexMeshBackgroundMesh" looks like it was useful during development, but it was not updated when "foamyHexMesh" et al were completed for release.
||If the presence of foamyHexMeshBackgroundMesh in the source tree is causing confusion I can remove it pending it being brought up to date.|
I was thinking more along the lines if a proposed bug fix can come in handy or not!?
