Dear all,

I have converted a mesh generated with Ansys and when I give the command 'paraFoam' to visualize it, I get this error message:

keyword type is undefined in dictionary "/root/Documents/OF_case1/0/p::boundaryField::wall-air_internal-packs_6"

file: /root/Documents/OF_case1/0/p::boundaryField::wall-air_internal-packs_6

    From function dictionary::lookupEntry(const word&, bool, bool) const
    in file db/dictionary/dictionary.C at line 400.

FOAM exiting
I am sure that file p in folder 0 contains the definition of wall-air_internal-packs_6.

Could you help to solve this? Thanks,

You need to add the keyword "Type" Is the boundary condition a "fixedValue", "zeroGradient" etc...
