When using grid adaption, it is possible to get error messages similar to the following:
Assertion failed: success && noOfSides == 4, file j:CFX-5.7-buildsrcrefinersrc.ElementsTriColumn.ixx, line 669
virtual void Triangle::getFaceEdges(int, int&, Edge**) const: Assertion `face > -1 && face < noOfFaces' failed.
Assertion failed: 0, file /devel2/cfx5test/cfx/src/5.6/refiner/src/./Elements/TriColumn.cxx, line 374
The grid refiner code was written for a typical mesh, with or without inflation, from CFX-Mesh or for meshes with single element types, and other grid types, perhaps with
many element types, are not supported by the refiner.
A potential workaround, which works in most cases, is to set the Environment Variable CFX5_REFINER_NO_TRICOLUMNS to a value of 1.
