Summary0000409: MRF solvers give wrong results when MRF zones is larger than the rotating walls
DescriptionUsing MRFSimpleFoam on a simple cases gives very different results depending on the size of the cellZone used.

If the cellZone just spans the walls that traverse through the cells then results are good.

Making the cellZone slightly bigger results in distorted velocity field.
Steps To ReproduceMake the cellZone in the attached case from radius 0.05m to 0.07m and rerun.

The convergence doesn´t seem to be reached.
2000 iterations (the number you set in your cases) are not enough.
Try with 25000.



AMI patches should be added to the nonRotatingPatches in the MRFZones dictionary
