Hello

I am a beginner with OpenFoam and CFD. I have prepared a blockMeshDict for a pipe tee junction. It is 120mm diameter pipe which is 1500mm long in X-direction and from the middle (750 mm from both ends), an equal tee of diameter 120mm and 750mm long comes out of it. I have to model turbulence. When I want to see my mesh using ParaFoam, I get error which is

--> FOAM Warning :
From function entry::getKeyword(keyType&, Istream&)
in file db/dictionary/entry/entryIO.C at line 77
Reading /home/imad/OpenFOAM/imad-2.1.1/run/projects/incompressible/icoFoam/cavity/constant/polyMesh/boundary

Below is my blockMeshDict data. Please advise. I shall be very grateful.

After running blockMesh, did you run checkMesh?
