Hi all,

I know there is a similar post to this, but it doesn't match exactly and I can't figure out how to adapt it to my own.

I'm having the following error:

Trying to specify a boundary face 3(0 42 3) on the face on cell 196 which is either an internal face or already belongs to some other patch. This is face 0 of patch 0 named wall.

From function polyMesh::setTopology
const cellShapeList& cellsAsShapes,
const faceListList& boundaryFaces,
const wordList& boundaryPatchNames,
labelList& patchSizes,
labelList& patchStarts,
label& defaultPatchStart,
label& nFaces,
cellList& cells
in file meshes/polyMesh/polyMeshFromShapeMesh.C at line 357.

FOAM aborting

Aborted (core dumped)

I am also a novice at this and trying to run T shaped simulation. How can I resolve this issue??

Have you solved the problem yet? For issues like that it is usually a good idea to post the blockMeshDict file so that other users can spot the error.
