hi everyone,

I recently started to work with OP, so I have created a case as a cube which has inlet, outlet and walls.... I use icoFoam. Under /0/ directory I have p and U files. I created my mesh, but when I want to run the icoFoam I get the following error for time step continuity:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Create time

Create mesh for time = 0

Reading transportProperties

Reading field p

Reading field U

Reading/calculating face flux field phi


Starting time loop

Time = 0.001

Courant Number mean: 2.5e-05 max: 0.005
DILUPBiCG: Solving for Ux, Initial residual = 1, Final residual = 1.37371e-06, No Iterations 2

time step continuity errors : sum local = 3.41541e-09, global = -4.48079e-12, cumulative = 1.33191e-10
ExecutionTime = 0.2 s ClockTime = 0 s



so I don't know exactly where is my mistake... it would be nice if someone can help me to find my mistake,
Thanks

hi Rosh,
there is no mistake , your log looks good.
The lines
time step continuity errors : sum local = 3.41541e-09, global = -4.48079e-12, cumulative = 1.33191e-10
are numerical error estimations . Your values are small.

Keep foaming ...
