Hi, it's my second message on that forum and I'm still a rookie here. I meshed a 3D model with snappyHexMesh (finally...) but when I try to check it visually running paraFoam it sends me the next error message:

keyword back is undefined in dictionary "/home/caelinux/Desktop/motorBike/0/p::boundaryField"

file: /home/caelinux/Desktop/motorBike/0/p::boundaryField from line 27 to line 16.

From function dictionary::subDict(const word& keyword) const
in file db/dictionary/dictionary.C at line 461.

I don't know why I get this error because I'm using the motorBike tutorial files directly with the minimal changes to fit it to my 3D model... so the back is called with "include/frontBackUpperPatches" in the p file and in the others like U,k...

Could someone give me some help? Thanks

Greetings H25E,

Two questions:
  1. Does your model have the exact identical names as the model in "motorBike"?
  2. Which file extension are you opening in ParaView? Is it ".foam" or ".OpenFOAM"?
    Because the internal reader that uses ".foam" is not able to include other files, such as "include/frontBackUpperPatches".
By the way, please post code and text output inside the "[CODE]" markers, as explained here: Posting code and output with [CODE]

Best regards,
