Why are these normals not calculated correctly?

edited September 16 in DualSPHysics v5.0


I am trying to use mDBC on a simple rectangular 2d element and the final result for the normal I see is

This is wrong as far as I know, since it should be as in the guide;

Where we see at corners 45 degree normals appears - but not in my case. When I try to visualize CaseSloshing using mDBC (for the bounding box) I see the correct normals using my approach for visualization:

What would the reason then be for my rectangular element to not have these kind of 45 degree normals?

Kind regards


  • Perhaps, we can help you if we check the XML... and the geos you are defining...
