Greetings Wayne and welcome to the forum!

Well, you're asking a very generic question... therefore, I'm going to use a pre-packaged answer:
  1. Don't panic.
  2. Start reading here: Foam::error::PrintStack - post #2
You'll understand why it's a very generic question once you start reading that post

Best regards and good luck!
Bruno

Thank you very much,wyldckat.
But when i use 'checkMesh',i also have some errors below. Do i have some problems in my Mesh?

Could you analysis it more clearly? What's the problem with the Mesh?

I have a very simple Mesh. Just a tank.So i cann't know the specific problem with my Mesh.

Allow me to point out the issues...

This seems to be a clear indication of what's going wrong:

Imagine that your mesh was a cube of 1x1x1 m^3. Then imagine that you stretch only one of the corners to 4.5156526e+197 m! One light year is 1e+16 m... so, that point would be 4.5e+181 light years away from the original cube...

Ironically, the volume indicated is:

Which is... strange. Is your tank the size of molecule, atom or electron?
It almost looks like you don't even have a mesh Or that you are trying to simulate the whole universe...

If you give some details about the mesher you are using, then it might be easier to point out what is really going on

Best regards,
Bruno

Dear Bruno:
Thanks for your precious time to analysis my poor problems.
My tank is 10*2*2 m^3. And i use gridgen to make a fluent mesh. Then using the tool 'fluentMeshToFoam' to transform the mesh .
I have known the problem!
My hard disk is full.So when i copy the Mesh file,maybe some error happened. And my Mesh is broken.
Thank you very much man . You are the frist guy who reply me in OpenFoam forume.
But when i running the case ,there some error happens.
[error]-> FOAM FATAL IO ERROR:
keyword backwall is undefined in dictionary "/home/cfd/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.7.1/tutorials1/multiphase/interFoam/ras/tankcase/0/p_rgh::boundaryField"

What the matter with the p_rgh?

You have a patch called backwall on which you have not defined a boundary condition for p_rgh. So you must add (or correct, if there is a typo) an entry for backwall in the 0/p_rgh file.

Guys,

I am experiencing a similar problem. I posted my error details on another thread in this forum, but my problem has not resolved. I was told to try changing all "0" value boundary conditions to a value such as "1e10-16". But it didn't work.

My mesh is alright, and my boundary conditions worked well for incompressible case. Can I get some help by posting my error here?

Regars,

Umer

Hi Umer,

You could have posted the link to said thread

I've answered you here: changes in rhoSimpleFoam since OpenFOAM version 1.6

Best regards,
Bruno
