Hi. I have the following err
I have the following error after some runs.
It looks like twoPhaseEulerFoam application produced some output
inconsistent with paraView data format.

I changed somethings in input files, and after that I can't reproduce
this error. Just wondering what might cause this.

This is typical when you run a
This is typical when you run a case and have some results lying around and then change the mesh size
and try to look at the results with the new mesh, but using the old data.

The fields are just an array of values and these correspond to the cells in 'constant/polyMesh/cells'

So if you change the mesh you must remove all the old results.
