Hi All,

I successfully imported mesh from Salome for significantly modified multiRegionHeater case. The case is modified in the way so there is only one liquid and only one solid, inlet, outlet, wall. The mesh is imported in appropriate way and output is ok. The thing that is not ok for me is the error I have after running chtMultiRegionFoam which is:

--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
Cannot find file "points" in directory "liquid/polyMesh" in times 0 down to constant

It would be highly appreciated if anybody would be able to help me here.

Thank you.

Hi,

did you use "splitMeshRegions" tool to separate the mesh into different regions?

When I used Salome to generate multi region meshes to use with chtMultiRegionFoam I had to split the mesh before running the solver.

Hi jmdf,

I tried the command you quoted. The result is the same.

Hum, can you specify the procedure you used?

When I import a mesh from Salome that has different regions, I use "splitMeshRegions -cellZones -overwrite" and the different regions are now in seperate folders on "./constant"

Hi,

i have the same issue right now, i ve imported the mesh into open foam, split mesh region but get the same error
Code:

mpirun has exited due to process rank 13 with PID 19255 on
node ubuntu exiting improperly. There are two reasons this could occur:

1. this process did not call "init" before exiting, but others in
the job did. This can cause a job to hang indefinitely while it waits
for all processes to call "init". By rule, if one process calls "init",
then ALL processes must call "init" prior to termination.

2. this process called "init", but exited without calling "finalize".
By rule, all processes that call "init" MUST call "finalize" prior to
exiting or it will be considered an "abnormal termination"

This may have caused other processes in the application to be
terminated by signals sent by mpirun (as reported here).

[ubuntu:19241] 15 more processes have sent help message help-mpi-api.txt / mpi-abort
[ubuntu:19241] Set MCA parameter "orte_base_help_aggregate" to 0 to see all help / error messages
i wonder if anyone has been able to find a solution to this problem.

thanks
