I am a new openFoam user and am having trouble with fluent3DMeshToFoam
The mesh converts OK, but with a warning:
--> FOAM Warning :
From function boundBox::boundBox(const pointField& points)
in file meshes/boundBox/boundBox.C at line 52
cannot find bounding box for zero sized pointFieldreturning zero
And then when I run checkMesh I get a problem with face orientation:
***Error in face pyramids: 38 faces are incorrectly oriented.
<<Writing 38 faces with incorrect orientation to set wrongOrientedFaces
My grid does include internal walls (split in ICEM) however I have been able to import other grids with internal walls just fine. Also the face numbers in wrongOrientedFaces don't appear to be associated with these patches.
A mesh quality check in ICEM doesn't show any problems and the simulation runs fine in CFX11.
Unlikely that there is a probl
Unlikely that there is a problem in the conversion. Sounds like your mesh is just not very good and the CFX checker does not pick this up as a problem.
These meshes are usually broke
These meshes are usually broken. When you read them into Fluent, the code will quietly fix the mesh and write it out in a correct form. Try reading in your mesh into fluent and writing it out again (ascii format) and all will be well.
Please let me know,

I faced similar warnings and error messages, but the simulation went smoothly.

Just to show the issue I was talking about on the previous post:
It seems the faces are not oriented in the same way, although they are in the same plane.
Hi there, Unfortunately my
Unfortunately my simulation crashes at a floating point exception immediately so I fear my grid issue is more serious.
I have tried with both Fluent3DMeshToFoam and StarToFoam and I believe I basically get the same foam mesh out,.. well the same errors at least. I have previously been running the simulations in CFX and it might be as Hrvoje suggested that CFX was merely repairing the issues. Unfortunately I don't have fluent or star to see if they can repair the issues. At the same time though, the grid passed all the checks in ICEM so it can't be that bad.
In the meantime I am going to try alternative grid generators / gridding strategies.
Thanks for your help,
Hi Steve, did you find a so
did you find a solution for your case? Whould be nice if you can show me. Thanks
