Hi, guys

I want to create a third region in a Fluid-Structure case, but came into problems.

When I try to make a symbolic link for the regions, the first two regions is going well, but when I try to make a symbolic link for the third region(which I want to add), the symbolic link is not working well.and when I try:
blockMesh . icoStructFoamTest_multipe_region
I end up with errors:
fw407@fw407-laptop:~$ ln -s /home/fw407/OpenFOAM/fw407-1.3/run/tutorials/icoStructFoam/icoStructFoamTest_mul tipe_region/constant/region3/polyMesh/ /home/fw407/OpenFOAM/fw407-1.3/run/tutorials/icoStructFoam/icoStructFoamTest_mul tipe_region/constant/polyMesh
fw407@fw407-laptop:~$ cd /home/fw407/OpenFOAM/fw407-1.3/run/tutorials/icoStructFoam
fw407@fw407-laptop:~/OpenFOAM/fw407-1.3/run/tutorials/icoStructFoam$ blockMesh . icoStructFoamTest_multipe_region

Reading block mesh description dictionary


--> FOAM FATAL ERROR : Cannot find mesh description file
"constant/polyMesh/blockMeshDict" or
"constant/polyMesh/meshDescription" or
"constant/mesh/meshDescription"

From function blockMesh
in file genBlockMesh.C at line 102.

FOAM exiting


Could anyone tell me how to solve it?

All the best

Is there a file icoStructFoamTest_multipe_region/constant/region3/polyMesh/blockMeshDict ?
Did you remove the symbolic link from the previous regions?

Hi, Bernhard

There is a file icoStructFoamTest_multipe_region/constant/region3/polyMesh/blockMeshDict
and I have removed the symbolic link before I make a new one

However, the property dialogue of the symbolic link I create for region 3 tells me it is a broken one.

By the way, do you think it has a connection with a file called tetFemSolution? because in this file, it only define something like:

object tetFemSolution; ln -s (symbolic link for region 2)

All the best

Feng
