Hi,

I had written a blockMechDict file for a cylindrical pipe geometry. When I ran blockMesh, the following error was generated :

--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
face 0 in patch 1 does not have neighbour cell face : 4(5 6 9 5)

Can anybody help me with this and point out the error?

Here is my blockMeshDict code:

FoamFile
{
version 2.0;
format ascii;
class dictionary;
object blockMeshDict;
}
// * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * //

Hi,

and your question is?

Q: What does this error mean? A: You've messed up with numbering of the nodes in patch face description.
