Thank you very much for your time.

Ok, I received your mesh. I've only used simple (rectangular) channels for my simulations, so now I'm guessing, too.

Somewhere you have to tell OpenFOAM that it needs to rotate patch ILR to match ILR_shadow.

You can try this:

transform rotational;
rotationAxis (1 0 0); //adjust this to your case
//rotationCentre (0 0 0);

If this doesn't work, then I'm clueless. I'm sorry.

12
(
outlet
{
type patch;
nFaces 6400;
startFace 6276800;
}
inlet
{
type patch;
nFaces 6400;
startFace 6283200;
}
