Summary0002955: Mesh - boundary - duplicated entries with keyword inGroups
DescriptionWhen I generate a mesh which contains boundary type "slip" then there are duplicated entries with keyword inGroups in polyMesh/boundary related to that slip-patch. It causes an error when I'm using paraview with vtkOpenFOAMReader and results are not loaded into paraview. When I manually remove one of those inGroups then it works.
Steps To Reproduce1) Generate a mesh with blockMesh with patch type slip
2) run renumberMesh on a mesh which contains a slip patch type
3) maybe any patch manipulation utility does the same

There is no patch type "slip" in OpenFOAM, have you written your own?


simonek.j (reporter)

No I haven't, but it works with patch type slip - but it makes those duplicities.
What is also strange that it behaves in a different way when I use patch type "slip" or anything what is totally wrong - like "pacht" e.g.
slip makes duplicity of inGroups but "pacht" doesn't.

Anyway what shall I use as a patch type in combination with slip boundary condition - wall or patch?

Patch type slip does not exist so there is no advantage in using it. Unless you set disallowGenericPolyPatch false any unknown patch type will be treated as "generic" which is functionally equivalent to type "patch" which I recommend you use instead unless you implement patch type "slip".

The issue with the duplicate entries from the "generic" patch type is minor and I am looking into now.
