Hello, all:

I try to run the example of rivuletPanel with OpenFOAM 2.0.0. But there are some problems. The steps that I have done are:
1. run the blockMesh
2. run the reactingParcelFilmFoam

Then it show the error:
--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
Cannot find file "points" in directory "wallFilmRegion/polyMesh" in times 0 down to constant
From function Time::findInstance(const fileName&, const word&, const IOobject::readOption, const word&)
in file db/Time/findInstance.C at line 188.
FOAM exiting

So, I'am thinking maybe I should first create wallFilmRegion. But I don't know the command or steps to do.

Can anyone find out where the problem is?

Thanks.

Xiaoxia

You just open the file Allrun.pre and follow the steps.

Greetings to all!

For future reference:
  • The tutorial in question is "lagrangian/reactingParcelFilmFoam/rivuletPanel".
  • To run the case, go into the case folder "rivuletPanel" and run:
    Code:
    ./Allrun
  • To clean up the case, so that you can restart again, run:
    Code:
    ./Allclean
  • Last but not least, for more information, open your favourite text editor and open the files that are in this tutorial folder, so that you can learn how the scripts "Allrun", "Allrun.pre" and "Allclean" work. If you're feeling lazy, you can also see the file contents online, e.g. for OpenFOAM 2.2.x: https://github.com/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM...m/rivuletPanel
Best regards,
Bruno
