I run the simulation in parallel on 4 cores . However at the end of the simulation after reconstructPar there is no probes directory . Can ne1 point out the mistake ??

Send a message via Yahoo to nimasam
i dont know what the problem is , but as i know you can probe those points after simulation and reconstruction by using : probeLocations

try probes1 as a name instead of probes, and remove keyword enabled.

I assume you get no warning at the start of the simulation that your probe locations are outside of the domain?

Did you try my other two suggestions?

Because that are the only two differences between your controlDict and mine. And mine works fine.

Mmmmm, strange.

If you send me the full case I can have a look here.
You're using your own solver?
