Hi bola,

Before you run fluentMeshToFoam, make sure that you have a controlDict file in your <root>/<case>/system/ folder. copy thye control dict from one of the tutorial cases.

Also try running a few example cases first.

Hi,
I need to know if my mesh is correct (converted by fluent3DMeshToFoam).
With Fluent CFD code I get the correct comportment (the same mesh), but with openFoam the courant number increase from 1e-3 to one after 100 iterations, and I get strange comportment.
I use 4 non-orthogonal correctors.
Thank you a lot for help

a check mesh gives me:
