Dear All,

I have a problem while I am trying to use the pimpleDyMFoam solver.

As soon as I launch the simulation, I get this error:

Code:
rduser@slnxepmi05:/OPENFOAM/cases/moving_door_def_flow/test/openingNoEnergy$ pimpleDyMFoam

In the fvSolution file, located in the system folder, write the options for pRefCell and pRefValue in the PIMPLE section, below the nNonOrthogonalCorrectors option:


PIMPLE
{
nOuterCorrectors ....
nCorrectors ......
nNonOrthogonalCorrectors ....
pRefCell 0;
pRefValue 0;
}
