Hi All,

I am trying to follow a report that was about the "Actuator Disk Method". It is an interesting topic to learn. I have read the report until page 7, and then I have tried to apply what is been done in the report. However, I have faced some difficulties match it to OpenFoam 2.3.2 since it was made in the old version 1.5. I am asking if anybody of you by any chance run through the steps and find sometime to help out in this regard.

Here is "the error"what I got when I ran blockMesh and simpleFoam:
Cannot find patchField entry for cyclic fan_half0
Is your field uptodate with split cyclics?
Run foamUpgradeCyclics to convert mesh and fields to split cyclics.

file: /home/tariq/windturbine/project3/erikSvenningFiles/fan/0/p.boundaryField from line 34 to line 59.

From function GeometricField<Type, PatchField, GeoMesh>::GeometricBoundaryField::readField(const DimensionedField<Type, GeoMesh>&, const dictionary&)
in file /home/tariq/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.3.1/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/GeometricBoundaryField.C at line 192.

FOAM exiting
Thank you in advance
