Hello everyone,

I have a problem to convert my gmsh mesh file to OpenFoam. I am just starting to use OpenFoam and hope u can help me with my first test case. Its just to test how to convert gmsh to OpenFoam. The mesh has to be edited to run a simulation.

This is the Error Warning I have received:

And this is my .geo file. I have defined all the physical surfaces and volumes and cannot find my mistake. I hope you do!

Same for me. I've started a thread here https://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/op...oam-5-0-a.html. No solution yet.
