ertdiana is on a distinguished road
Could somebody tell the stupid me how to define the mesh? I have copied a tutorial to start a new case by editing the tutorial. I have edited the dictionary for the mesh, but when i am trying to read it, the message says "no defined mesh"

thank you!

OK, this is what you do
- edit the file constant/polyMesh/blockMeshDict to define the vertices and blocks
- run

blockMesh <root> <case>

I assume you know the root and case bit; if not, please have a look at the tutorials.
