Hi,
i am doing a wedge type mesh in blockMesh of a couette cell, angle 3.
i attached the file "blockMeshDict.txt", can anyone check Pleaaase?
note : first you should remove the ".txt" extension.

thanks

I have always this error:

Hi.
I've been running in to a similar issue and I'm unsure how to resolve it. Which version of OpenFOAM are you using? When I checkMesh my mesh, I get the error in 1.6 but no error in 1.5. I'm curious if anyone knows why this happens.

TIP: When creating a mesh, frontAndBack patches cannot be set up initially as empty ones. That's the reason of this error. Initially set it up to "patch", then you can redefine it in "polyMesh/boundary" file to "empty".

Hope it solves your problem.

Best,
K
