Hello there, I'm trying to simulate an orifice plate on OpenFOAM using the PimpleFOAM solver (turbulent and incompressible). I'm trying to make only a cylinder first using the blockMeshDict archive, but when I run paraview it returns an error, is it better to make a .stl model then import it to OpenFOAM? I would be very thankful if any of you guys could help me out.
I'm making my simulation based on the pitzdaily tutorial and the error that shows when I run paraview is:

--> FOAM FATAL IO ERROR:

Cannot find patchField entry for wall



file: /mnt/c/Users/Casa/Desktop/Cilindro/0/p/boundaryField from line 25 to line 46.



From function void Foam::GeometricField<Type, PatchField, GeoMesh>::Boundary::readField(const Foam:imensionedField<TypeR, GeoMesh>&, const Foam::dictionary&) [with Type = double; PatchField = Foam::fvPatchField; GeoMesh = Foam::volMesh]

in file /home/ubuntu/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-8/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/GeometricBoundaryField.C at line 184.



FOAM exiting

As the error message says, you are missing an entry for wall in the p file. E. g.:
Code:
...
wall
{
    type    zeroGradient;
}
...

Thank you! When I checked my "0" folder it indeed didn't have any entry for "wall", it only had: upperWall, lowerWall and frontAndBack from the pitzdaily tutorial, once again thanks!
