Hello all,

my first posting relates to the new version of OpenFoam 1.6.x and the CreatePatchDict formulation.

Since I've updated my OF I got an error massage that says that my CreatePatchDict misses a block called patchInfo.

If I switch back to OF 1.5.x everything works fine, but it would be very nice to be able to use OF 1.6 as well.

My CreatePatchDict looks like:

/*--------------------------------*- C++ -*----------------------------------*\
| ========= | |
| \\ / F ield | OpenFOAM: The Open Source CFD Toolbox |
| \\ / O peration | Version: 1.5 |
| \\ / A nd | Web: http://www.OpenFOAM.org |
| \\/ M anipulation | |
\*---------------------------------------------------------------------------*/
FoamFile
{
version 2.0;
format ascii;
class dictionary;
object createPatcheDict;
}
// * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * //

matchTolerance 1E-3;
pointSync true;
patches
(
{
name IN;
type patch;
constructFrom patches;
patches (
face-1
);
}

{
name OUT;
type patch;
constructFrom patches;
patches (
face-2
);
}

{
name WING;
type wall;
constructFrom patches;
patches (
face-7
);
}

{
name SYM;
type symmetryPlane;
constructFrom patches;
patches (
face-4
face-6
face-3
face-5
);
}
);
// * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * //


and the corresponding boundary file:

/*--------------------------------*- C++ -*----------------------------------*\
| ========= | |
| \\ / F ield | OpenFOAM: The Open Source CFD Toolbox |
| \\ / O peration | Version: 1.6.x |
| \\ / A nd | Web: www.OpenFOAM.org |
| \\/ M anipulation | |
\*---------------------------------------------------------------------------*/
FoamFile
{
version 2.0;
format ascii;
class polyBoundaryMesh;
location "constant/polyMesh";
object boundary;
}
// * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * //

}

}
)

Thanks everyone for your help!

I am curious about your suggestions since I was not able to find anything about the new syntax for createPatchDict in OF 1.6.x

There is a sample createPatchDict in the source directory ($FOAM_UTILITIES/mesh/manipulation/createPatch). Some of the entries got renamed for consistency reasons.
