Hello,

I just upgraded to 1.4.1 by compiling the source.
I have noticed that blockMesh does not like more than 962 cells in the x-direction in the sonicFoam/shockTube example (1 block), and it gives this error if you specify more than 962 cells:

--> FOAM FATAL ERROR : face 0 in patch 0 does not have neighbour cell face: 4(0 2 3 1)#0

I don't know if this is related to the problem or not, since I had not started to really use version 1.4.1, but I had made changes to the source of sonicFoam and executed Allwmake in the applications directory. I saw some errors in vtkFoam application (different gcc versions), but the modified sonicFoam application works fine.

Thank you for your help.

The error message seems to suggest that there is a problem in your blockMeshDict. Paste it here. Someone might be able to identify the source of the problem.

Dear Srinath,
Thank you for your reply.
It is the one in sonicFoam/shockTube. I haven't changed the blockMeshDict. As I said, the error goes away if the mesh size is 962, instead of the original 1000! I feel that something is wrong with my blockMesh. The full error is below the letter.
Thanks, Kian Mehravaran

Wierd. It works perfectly fine for me here. Compare your blockMeshDict with this one:

Thank you for posting your blockMeshDict, mine is exactly the same. Weird indeed.

Another weird problem that I had, reminded me of the difference our systems might have:
I compiled mine with single precision.
I noticed that when I use a deltaT lower than 1.0E-05, it is basically regarded as zero. In other words, time is always zero!
I checked the deltaT.value() in the code (sonicFoam), and it contains the correct value.
