problem running blockMesh in ubuntu terminal (openfoam)
 
i am new to ubuntu and openfoam.i was trying to run a compressible simulation . when i tried to run blockMesh of rhoSimplecFoam the follwing errror was shown in terminal window


subh@subh-VirtualBox:~$ cd OpenFOAM/subh-2.2.0/run/rhoSimplecFoam
subh@subh-VirtualBox:~/OpenFOAM/subh-2.2.0/run/rhoSimplecFoam$ blockMesh

do you have controlDict File under /system ?

subhsngh June 26, 2013 07:34

yes it is in system

are you running blockMesh in the case directory?
If it is squareBend, then you have to go and run blockMesh in the case directory, ie:
cd squareBend

thank you it's working....
can you please tell me what should i use to develop a simulation for studying heat properties of a porous medium in a cylndrical tank ..and yes it is compressible

i am working on a project in my college.....so i would be very happy

i would open a new thread with explicit subject in the right subforum
;)
