Hello everyone.

I'm trying to simulate the Bird's problem in section of 13.4, that must use the dsmcFoam solver.

But, in this case we must build a wall, something linke that:


|--------------|
|____|_____|
The thin wall is in the bottom middle. Image the hifens as the domain roof.

I'm new in OpenFoam and I noted that it have a problem in declaring internal faces, then I created four points twice declared as walls1 and walls2, as shown below.

    }

    plan2
    {
        type symmetryPlane;
        faces
        (
            (18 16 17 21)
        );
    }

    walls1
    {
        type wall;
        faces
        (
            (2 10 9 1)
        );
    }
    
    walls2
    {
        type wall;
        faces
        (
            (18 19 20 21)
        );
    }
)
The problem runs, blockMesh works, dsmcInitialise works, but the code stops in first "particles inserted" count.

I think is a problem about the "thin wall" inserted.
Can anybody tell me if it is ok? Or, I must change it?
