yuhai is on a distinguished road
I am still using 1.5-dev, because the we failed in installing 1.6 on cluster.
I set up a mesh on Gambit in 3D, and convert it into OpenFOAM,
when my .msh is relatively small, it is fine: but when I increase the mesh points on some lines in the .jou, and run the journal then convert to OF again, my mesh can't pass checkMesh:
" ***Error in face pyramids: 24 faces are incorrectly oriented.
<<Writing 24 faces with incorrect orientation to set wrongOrientedFaces"

I have try the the method suggested by prof. Jasak, "read into Fluent, then write out", but in most cases, it doesn't work.

Can you give me some idea?
Thanks in advance.
