Hello all,

I'm trying to run a simple droplet onto a wall case in an axi-symmetric situation (Wedge).
On the "rightWall" I have a wall boundary condition.

(in blockMeshDict: wall rightWall)

For the t=0, alpha1 boundary condition I wanted to choose the option "wall" for rightWall, but the interFoam solver exits with the error "not implemented". Changing the boundary condition to zeroGradient leads to a solution.

Not really a bug, more an inconvenience.

This is maybe because "wall" has never been a boundary condition in OpenFoam
You can read a list of some available boundary conditions at

Right, forget this item, how stupid of me. Didn't check my p and U files, which had a constantvelocity / buoyantpressure condition
