Hi - I'm new to OpenFOAM.

I ran damBreak3d using openMPI over Infiniband with the "runnproc" scripts 1-8.

Now I want to try 16 processes and more.

My questions is:
1) Should I clone the case = nproc8 and create a "nproc16" with FoamX (FoamX won't start on my system) ?

2) Is it best to create a new case? Is there a way from command line to create a new case?

3) I copied the case "nproc8" and changed "8" to 16 but Foam IO had trouble opening the controlDict file
