Hi guys, I am trying to solve a simple thermal diffusion equation using laplacianFoam.

The boundary condition for T is a jump condition, means that the inlet value is always equal to the outlet value plus a delta_T. I search on internet, it seems that I should use "fixedJump" according to the official site:

For generating mesh, I assign the faces to be type "cyclic".

blockMesh is ok. But when running laplacianFoam, an error goes as:

inconsistent patch and patchFields types for
patch type cyclic and patchField type fixedJump

I am wondering which patch type should I use, other than "cyclic" ?
