Hi all,
I have a closed loop flow problem. I want to model a pressure drop(to simulate forced convection) across a internal face using "fan" boundary condition in openfoam 2.1.1. I am using Gambit to generate mesh and then "FluentMeshToFoam" command to import it to OF. The steps given in openfoamwiki is not working with OF 2.1.1. How to import a mesh with internal face in OF 2.1.1?

its fluentMeshToFoam not FluentMeshToFoam (F is not capital :P)
however, your case is 2D or 3D? if it is 3D cases, you should use fluent3DMeshToFoam
if there is an error, you should post your error here, then any one would help you
