Summary0003286: cyclicRepeatAMI produces obviously wrong transformation for vector field
DescriptionI created a simple test case for a turbomachinery application. It includes mapping between a sector mesh and a full 360deg mesh. I wanted to use cyclicRepeatAMI for this mapping.

First, I ran potentialFoam and examined the resulting velocity field. I expected a distribution, which is inward-pointing everywhere (the inlet is the outer patch of the wedge and the inner surface of the cylinder is the outlet). Instead, the result is an odd-looking distribution which is not symmetric.

I suspect that something is wrong with the determination of the transformations.
Steps To Reproduce1. unpack attached archive
2. run potentialFoam
TagsNo tags attached.

cyclicRepeatAMI can only couple geometrically similar patches, i.e., a 30-degree sector to another 30-degree sector, as in the incompressible/pimpleFoam/RAS/impeller tutorial. It can't couple a 30-degree sector to a 360-degree sector. It is not a general mixing plane.
