Description

The fixedJumpAMI is a general coupled boundary condition to provide a jump condition across non-conformal cyclic patch pairs (employing AMI). The jump is specified as a fixed value field, applied as an offset to the β€˜owner’ patch.

Usage

The condition requires entries in both the boundary and field files.

Boundary file

<patchName>
{
    type            patch;
    ...
}

Field file

<patchName>
{
    // Mandatory entries
    type            fixedJumpAMI;
    jump            <Field<Type>>;

    // Inherited entries
    patchType       <word>;
    ...
}

where:

Property Description Type Required Default
type Type name: fixedJumpAMI word yes -
jump Jump field Field<Type> yes -

The inherited entries are elaborated in:

  • jumpCyclicAMIFvPatchField.H

  • The underlying patchType should be set to cyclicAMI.
