Hi all,

I am quite new to OpenFoam. I am trying to extend the 15dwedge problem given in the tutorial of rhoCentralFoam or DMSC Foam to 15d double wedge problem. I have modified the existing blockMeshdict file. It is attached below. I am getting error.

Creating curved edges
Creating topology blocks
Creating topology patches

Creating block mesh topology
--> FOAM Warning :
From function polyMesh:: polyMesh(... construct from shapes...)
in file meshes/polyMesh/polyMeshFromShapeMesh.C at line 888
Found 8 undefined faces in mesh; adding to default patch.

Check topology

Basic statistics
Number of internal faces : 3
Number of boundary faces : 18
Number of defined boundary faces : 18
Number of undefined boundary faces : 0
Checking patch -> block consistency

Creating block offsets
Creating merge list

Inconsistent number of faces between block pair 0 and 3

From function blockMesh::calcMergeInfo()
in file blockMesh/blockMeshMerge.C at line 221.

FOAM exiting

Please anyone can help. It is almost 1st problem I am trying apart from the tutorial ones.

common face between two blocks should have the same number of division from each side
