Ok, I received your mesh. I've only used simple (rectangular) channels for my simulations, so now I'm guessing, too.

Somewhere you have to tell OpenFOAM that it needs to rotate patch ILR to match ILR_shadow.

You can try this:

transform rotational;
rotationAxis (1 0 0); //adjust this to your case
//rotationCentre (0 0 0);

If this doesn't work, then I'm clueless. I'm sorry.

Hello blacksquirrel,
Thanks for your reply, I want try the previous reply from you.

I am bit confused to edit the createPatchDict.

can you please help me to edit.

after creating the wall boundary my boundary file look like this,

12
(
outlet
{
type patch;
nFaces 6400;
startFace 6276800;
}
inlet
{
type patch;
nFaces 6400;
startFace 6283200;
}
top2
{
type wall;
nFaces 16000;
startFace 6289600;
}
top1
{
type wall;
nFaces 2400;
startFace 6305600;
}
top0

}

startFace 6379200;
}
IFL

Are you trying to lauch FluentMeshToFoam from your system folder?
That can explain that it cannot find the "controlDict" located in a "system/system/" folder. You have to lauch fluentMeshToFoam from the root of your case.

Maybe my previous advice was not clear enough.
You cannot launch FluentMeshToFoam from the system folder. You have to launch it from the root of your case!
