Hi,

That error means your mesh has not been built correctly.
Running blockMesh is not enough to create a multi region case for chtMultiRegionFoam because mesh has to be split into regions.
Have a look at Allrun script in the tutorial directory and execute it.

Regards.

tnx for your reply.
do you mean that I should change openfoam tutorial multiRegionHeater to see this solver how work?multiRegionHeater isn't complete?
if multiRegionHeater is incomplete do you have any complete tutorial in order to see chtMultiRegionFoam how work?

I execute ./Allrun and terminal write this:

sajad@sajad-pc:~/Desktop/multiRegionHeater$ ./Allrun
blockMesh already run on /home/sajad/Desktop/multiRegionHeater: remove log file to re-run
Running topoSet on /home/sajad/Desktop/multiRegionHeater
splitMeshRegions already run on /home/sajad/Desktop/multiRegionHeater: remove log file to re-run
Running chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam on /home/sajad/Desktop/multiRegionHeater

creating files for paraview post-processing

created 'multiRegionHeater.blockMesh'
created 'multiRegionHeater.OpenFOAM'
created 'multiRegionHeater{bottomAir}.OpenFOAM'
created 'multiRegionHeater{heater}.OpenFOAM'
created 'multiRegionHeater{leftSolid}.OpenFOAM'
created 'multiRegionHeater{rightSolid}.OpenFOAM'
created 'multiRegionHeater{surrondingSolid}.OpenFOAM'
created 'multiRegionHeater{topAir}.OpenFOAM'

creating files for residual

./Allrun: 58: foamLog: Permission denied


why at the end it write Permission denied?

Try first to run ./Allclean.

If you don't have permissions type in the temrinal

chmod +x <name of the document>

What you are requesting you can easily find it out by yourself by typing in the terminal:

Code:
chmod --help
