Hi everyone,
I've generated mesh for a cylinder in gambit. i divide the cylinder into 5 partitions like blockMesh dictionary in openFoam.I assigned name and type just for inlet,outlet and surrounding faces of cylinder in gambit but do nothing for internal faces.
I import mesh to my case in openFoam and consider defaultFaces for internal faces of cylinder in boundary dictionary in polyMesh like below:
type empty;
nfaces 20836;
startFace 171740;
but when I run the solver, some error are appeared in terminal and Foam abort.
the error file is attached.
any help is appreciated.

Hi my friend ,

I don't know what is the origin of your problem but I should say that openfoam doesn't know an internalFace as a boundary face . So defaultFaces are not internalfaces . I think you created a 2D mesh in gambit.

Best regards,
