I'm trying to simulate a wake with actuationDisk approach and have used the tutorial turbinSiting as a starting point. I' m using snappyHM to create a mesh over a flat stl-surface but I have not succeeded meshing the disk. I get this message when running simpleWindFoam;

Selecting model type actuationDiskSource
Source: disk1
- selecting cells using cellSet actuationDisk1
- selected 0 cell(s) with volume 0
Everything is the same as in the turbinsiting-tutorial, except that I have changed the domain and used a flat stl-surface instead of complex terrain. I do not understand what is wrong, anyone with similar experience?
