Boussinesq Tutorials
I tried running the various Boussinesq tutorials (both the steady and unsteady tutorials) in OpenFOAM1.7.1 by typing ./Allrun in the directories, but I get the following error in the log file:

HTML Code:

Reading field kappat

cannot open file

file: /home/control/OpenFOAM/control-1.7.1/run/tutorials/heatTransfer/buoyantBoussinesqSimpleFoam/iglooWithFridges/0/kappat at line 0.

    From function regIOobject::readStream()
    in file db/regIOobject/regIOobjectRead.C at line 61.

FOAM exiting

Is there something in the tutorial that I am supposed to change before I run it? :confused:

No Kappat File in 0 directory
Problem is resolved. Somehow the kappat file was not in the 0 directory. I recopied the tutorials from the opt directory to my home directory and that solved the problem. It is strange that the kappat file was not copied originally...
