Hi,

I am making car simulation and I would like to use 2 cores. I have 8 cores at use, four cores in each Intel Xeon processor.

However when I try to run the simulation as parallel I will get this kind of error:

MPI_ABORT was invoked on rank 0 in communicator MPI_COMM_WORLD
with errorcode 1.

NOTE: invoking MPI_ABORT causes Open MPI to kill all MPI processes.
You may or may not see output from other processes, depending on
exactly when Open MPI kills them.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
mpirun has exited due to process rank 0 with PID 20669 on
node caelinux exiting without calling "finalize". This may
have caused other processes in the application to be
terminated by signals sent by mpirun (as reported here).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
[caelinux:20668] 1 more process has sent help message help-mpi-api.txt / mpi-abort
[caelinux:20668] Set MCA parameter "orte_base_help_aggregate" to 0 to see all help / error messages
Please let me know what to do. Thank you!

PS. I use this code to run the simulation:

Are you sure it works serial? i.e, does pisoFoam give you any errors? In any case, the 0/p file is missing or your decomposition went wrong. You can read this from the error message.

Hi,

No I am not sure whether or not it works as serial. Furthermore I do not understand a lot what the OpenFOAM says. I am a newbie in this business.

I think that "p" in 0 folder is not missing. So something went wrong with the decomposition?

Here is the result when I run only:

Code:
pisoFoam
And it produces:

--> FOAM FATAL IO ERROR:

From function regIOobject::readStream()
in file db/regIOobject/regIOobjectRead.C at line 73.

FOAM exiting
and here is my "p" file:

Please let me know how to fix "p"-file. Many thanks!

You are running from .../run/, and there is no .../run/0/p. That is certain by the errormessage. You don't want to cd into a specific case directory?
