reconstructPar crash with "denser" mesh

Submitted by evansmuts on Mon, 06/03/2013 - 15:00

Hi

I am not sure if this is the cause of the problem, but a few days ago I reduced my CFD cell size to be about 3 particle diameters. The simulation runs fine in parallel (12 cores), but when I run reconstructPar, I an error when it tries to reconstruct the lagrangian fields (e.g. caseDir/processor0/0.1/lagrangian/). ReconstructPar still runs fine with my original mesh.

I couldn't find any obvious fix after searching online, so I have posted the last bit of the screen output below to see if any one has had this problem as well. I am running OF v2.1.1. and CFDEM v2.5.3.
