Hello Everybody,

I have modified the atmBoundaryLayerInletVelocity Boundary Condition to a customFvPatch Boundary condition (which is Attached). It is compiled and does not give any errors. However when I try to use it after updating my ControlDict. It gives me the following error.

Code:
--> FOAM FATAL IO ERROR: 
Unknown patchField type custom for patch type patch

Valid patchField types are :

68

Can anybody tell me where am I going wrong.

Hi,

From the error you've posted it is seen that the patch doesn't recognise the boundary condition. Check if you've updated the Make/files files in the location where you've defined the boundary condition and give 'wmake' again.

Since you have already added libcustomFvPatchField.so to the controlDict it should recognise the BC.
