rheiland is on a distinguished road
So far I've not been able to find a simple tutorial/example of flow through a pipe, e.g., just a straight cylinder. Am I overlooking something obvious? I have the following available after my installation:


FOAM_TUTORIALS=/home/heiland/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-9/tutorials


heiland@asus:~/OpenFOAM/heiland-9/run$ ls $FOAM_TUTORIALS
Allclean basic discreteMethods financial lagrangian resources
Allrun combustion DNS heatTransfer mesh stressAnalysis
Alltest compressible electromagnetics incompressible multiphase

$ ls $FOAM_TUTORIALS/incompressible/
adjointShapeOptimisationFoam icoFoam pimpleFoam porousSimpleFoam simpleFoam SRFSimpleFoam
boundaryFoam nonNewtonianIcoFoam pisoFoam shallowWaterFoam SRFPimpleFoam


thanks,
Randy


Related, but not to confuse the simple question above, I also cloned this repo: https://develop.openfoam.com/Development/openfoam.git
because it seemed to contain more examples. However, I seem to have a problem when I try to run one of those, e.g.:


heiland@asus:~/git/openfoam/tutorials/mesh/blockMesh/pipe$ ./Allrun
Running blockMesh on /home/heiland/git/openfoam/tutorials/mesh/blockMesh/pipe
heiland@asus:~/git/openfoam/tutorials/mesh/blockMesh/pipe$ ls
Allclean Allrun constant log.blockMesh system
heiland@asus:~/git/openfoam/tutorials/mesh/blockMesh/pipe$ more log.blockMesh
