Hello Foamers,
Good day!

I am a beginner to OpenFOAM, currently, I am using 'ofv40' and trying to run a custom solver regarding the modeling of water transport in PEMFC. After creating mesh by using 'blockMesh' I tried to run the custom solver and got this error:


--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
Cannot find file "points" in directory "abp/polyMesh" in times 0 down to constant

From function Foam::word Foam::Time::findInstance(const Foam::fileName&, const Foam::word&, Foam::IOobject::readOption, const Foam::word&) const
in file db/Time/findInstance.C at line 182.

FOAM exiting


Any idea how to solve this issue?
Thanks in advance.

where is your polyMesh-directory?

yeah thats the problem
normally, it should be in the constant-directory, once blockMesh is executed.

what is the terminal output when you execute blockMesh?

I tried it again and got a polyMesh-directory in the 'constant'.
It has 5 files 'boundary' , 'faces' , 'neighbour' , 'owner' , 'points'

But still got the same error.

thats a strange behaviour.
we will need to do further investigation.

what is the solver you created?
did you modify an existing solver?
if yes, where did you do the mod?
if no, how did you create the new solver?

Well, it's a custom "PEMFC Single-Phase Non-Iso thermal model" solver tool, I found it online which is well suited to my interests. However, I think there is something wrong with the already constructed geometry.
