Hi,
I'm trying to use the utility refineMesh but I've faced with this error :

Code:
Create polyMesh for time = 0

Mesh edge statistics:
    x aligned :  number:390150    minLen:0.36    maxLen:0.36
    y aligned :  number:385050    minLen:0.36    maxLen:0.36
    z aligned :  number:385050    minLen:0.36    maxLen:0.36
    other     :  number:0    minLen:1e+15    maxLen:-1e+15

Refining according to refineMeshDict



--> FOAM FATAL IO ERROR: 
cannot find file

file: /home/mohsen/Desktop/case18_MEXICO1/-overwrite at line 0.

    From function regIOobject::readStream()
    in file db/regIOobject/regIOobjectRead.C at line 73.

FOAM exiting
can anyone help me??
thanks guys

Hi,

the error message clearly states that the file /home/mohsen/Desktop/case18_MEXICO1/-overwrite is missing.

Since you didn't provide the whole call to refineMesh I can provide an assumption only: You're probably using some kind of script to call refineMesh which contains some errors. Instead of assembling the correct path to refineMeshDict the script appends the -overwrite option without any separating spaces.

Hi, I faced it before and solve by mention the complete path as bellow:
Code:
 refineMesh -dict system/refineMeshDict -overwrite
Hope it works for your case good luck

Btw, I am facing a problem in refineMesh based on refineMeshDict. i had successfully refine it without adding option -dict, but i want to refine more for the surface and surrounding region.

I run refineMesh -dict system/refineMeshDict as following:

Writing refined cells (79488) to cellSet "0.02/polyMesh/sets/refinedCells"

Writing map from new to old cell to "/home/ang/OpenFOAM/jhTutorial/pimpleDyMfoam/NewblockMRefined1_deletedCarRefinedSurf/0.02/polyMesh/cellMap"

Mesh edge statistics:
    x aligned :  number:710148  minLen:0.025    maxLen:0.05

    other     :  number:0       minLen:1e+15    maxLen:-1e+15

End

I checked the total cells and thr's additional cells compared to that before refineMesh. So, i assume it was refined. But I cant understand what's the probem reported as above. I am totally run out of idea

May i get some help here? i would be grateful if there is advice for me. Thanks a lot
