Default Setfields no rewriting alpha.water file

Hi there,

Update: problem solved, the "box" was too big and outside of my domain", used checkMesh to check the domain for my mesh

I modified the dambreak case to simulate a two-phase flow in a horizontal pipe.

However, the setFields command does not rewrite my alpha.water files. Therefore my whole pipe is filled with water (alpha = 1) instead of having the top half filled with air.

I was able to execute the commands in the dam break tutorial case, but not after I modified the geometry.

I have attached a zipfile of the openfoam case that I am currently using.

Does any one have any idea on how I could solve this issue?

Kind regards
