Hi,
I want to create a cylindrical domain ( a wind Tunnel ) using blockMesh. but when I ran the checkMesh utility I got these errors :
Code:
 ***High aspect ratio cells found, Max aspect ratio: 5.82132516384e+99, number of cells 87120
  <<Writing 87120 cells with high aspect ratio to set highAspectRatioCells
    Minimum face area = 0.0173370986175. Maximum face area = 0.793420166088.  Face area magnitudes OK.
 ***Zero or negative cell volume detected.  Minimum negative volume: -0.232948349551, Number of negative volume cells: 87120
  <<Writing 87120 zero volume cells to set zeroVolumeCells
    Mesh non-orthogonality Max: 180 average: 159.098266664
 ***Number of non-orthogonality errors: 254364.
  <<Writing 254364 non-orthogonal faces to set nonOrthoFaces
 ***Error in face pyramids: 522720 faces are incorrectly oriented.
  <<Writing 268356 faces with incorrect orientation to set wrongOrientedFaces
    Max skewness = 3.71841074197 OK.
    Coupled point location match (average 0) OK.

Failed 4 mesh checks.
I have attached my blockMeshDict too. please see it.
can anyone help me to solve the problem?

thanks
