Summary0001553: adjustPhi uses strict tolerance
DescriptionIn adjustPhi it uses the totalFlux for normalisation and stabilises it to 1e-300. In the mixerVesselAMI2D case with a different scotch decomposition library I can end up with the FatalError message:

Total flux : 1e-300
Specified mass inflow : 0.0002638918998717107
Specified mass outflow : 0.0002638918998717106
Adjustable mass outflow : 0

which triggers the FatalError exit (1e-15 / 1e-300)

- I don't get this error with default scotch decomposition
- I can work around it by initialising some flow or writing the mesh in binary
TagsNo tags attached.

Is the problem caused by the AMI being non-conservative?

Don't know but this is at the first iteration & binary mesh writing fixes it. It looks more like a numerical truncation error (inflow and outflow differ only in the last digit)

Other: why is the check on processorFvsPatchScalarField and not phip.coupled()?

Why is there

Specified mass inflow : 0.0002638918998717107
Specified mass outflow : 0.0002638918998717106

The mixerVesselAMI2D case is closed, there should be no inflow or outflow or have you added inlets and outlets?

I have not changed the case.

It currently seems to integrate flux across cyclic/cyclicAMI as well:

            if (!isA<processorFvsPatchScalarField>(phip))

I think this should be

            if (!phip.coupled())
