Meshing Error Please Help!!!
 
I am having trouble with matching faces between blocks.

The error I receive is:

Inconsistent number of faces between block pair 0 and 1


I have spent many hours trying to fix this problem and so am posting as a last resort.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Kind regards


Ps. my code is below:

Hello Ollie, I don't really know what's wrong with your blockMeshDict. I simply gave up to use it and switched over to Salome, where the blockMesh for simple geometries can be meshed very easily. Just this morning I released my new video about this procedure, maybe interesting for you:
