problem with modifyPatches
 
Hi Foamers,

I am simulating a valve and the mesh has been extracted from fluent.
In this i supposed to change patch type from patch to wall .

I followed the procedure
1. copies zip file from wikiOpenFOAM to case directory
2. unzipped it
3. navigated to modifyPatches directory
4. run a command wclean\
5. then again ran a command wmake.
6. Navigated back to case directory and ran a command modifyPatches -wall SUPPORT

but it says modifyPatches: command not found.

Anybody please help me ?

your description is too vague to import mesh file from fluent, export it as .msh
then import it by one of following commands depend on it is 2D or 3D
Code:

fluentMeshToFoam
fluent3DMeshToFoam

after mesh is imported in OpenFOAM, you can change th BC from boundary file in constant/polyMesh

Hi
I imported mesh then checked for its quality and everything was fine then i followed the procedure explained earlier to change boundary patch type from patch to wall.

I followed the procedure
1. copied modifyPatches zip file from wikiOpenFOAM to case directory
2. unzipped it
3. navigated to modifyPatches directory
4. run a command wclean\
5. then again ran a command wmake.
6. Navigated back to case directory and ran a command modifyPatches -wall SUPPORT

but it says modifyPatches: command not found.
