In the directory where you are trying to run the kivaToFoam command, there should be a file called "itape17". The code says it is not there.

2) kivaToFoam /home/ervin/OpenFOAM/ervin-1.0.2/run/tutorials/engineFoam kivaTest -file itape17 -version kiva3v
What does it say now?
Unless your version of OpenFO
Unless your version of OpenFOAM-1.0.2 is different from mine, there is no "itape17" file in the specified tutorial directory. There is however an "otape17" file.

Thank you, both.
1) With changing the root from a terminal, to kivaTest directory, it works. The "otape17" file is actually in this directory.
2) The file itape17 was there because I have put it there. (my mistake)
3) I didn't find a way of changing the root to kivaTest directory from the FoamX GUI, though.
Hi. I'm a beginner of OPENF
I'm a beginner of OPENFOAM,
and now try to use tutorials/engineFoam.
Please tell me what is written in "otape17" file.
What is the meaning of numbers written in it?
Please help me.
otape17 is a arbitrary file na
otape17 is a arbitrary file name for the Kiva-3V which will be imported into the OF case.
The file itape17 is the mesh i
The file itape17 is the mesh in Kiva format.
It is made of:
1 line of description
1 line with ncells nverts nregions
<nverts> lines with coordinates and something else:
vertex_index (i4), x, y, z, vertex_flag (fv), idface
<nverts> lines with connettivity and something else:
i1tab, i3tab, i4, i8tab, f, bcl, bcf, bcb, idreg
a line with "mtables", a switch whose value is 0 or 1. If 0, Kiva builds the vectors imtab, jmtab and kmtab. If 1, then follow <nverts> lines with:
i4, imtab, jmtab, kmtab
and nothing more, I think.
Refer to a Kiva manual if you want more details!
Thank you, both. Thank you!
Thank you, both.
