cannot find MRF cellZone vessel
 
Hi guys , I recently started working with OpenFoam and I'm new to it , so excuse me if this problem seems simple or basic. I'm trying to model a rotating vessel in OpenFoam using the solver MRFInterFoam . I created the mesh using Gambit and i think i have successfully converted it to Foam (fluentMeshToFoam) , because I can display it in paraFoam and using the command chekMesh no problem shows up . but after setting the initial field (setFields also worked as expected) , I tried to run the program and the following error shows up :
"Reading g
Calculating field g.h

No finite volume options present

Creating MRF zone list from MRFProperties
creating MRF zone: zone1


--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
cannot find MRF cellZone vessel

From function MRFZone(const word&, const fvMesh&, const dictionary&, const word&)
in file cfdTools/general/MRF/MRFZone.C at line 311.

FOAM exiting"

I don't exactly know what the cell zones file(in poly Mesh directory) does or how it's created but it seems to have a problem :
"FoamFile
{
version 2.0;
format ascii;
class regIOobject;
location "constant/polyMesh";
object cellZones;
}
// * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * //

// ************************************************** *********************** //"

so can anyone help me ? thanks in advance for your time and considerations :)

well;
1- where did you define your MRF zone?
2- did you introduce your MRF zone to your MRFzoneDict?
