Dear All,

I doing a test case where I simulate particles travelling along a narrow square duct with a porous baffle (cyclic boundary conditions) located roughly half way between the inlet and outlet using the MPPICFoam solver. (Note I am using OpenFOAM v2112).

I have sorted out allot of issues but now I am stuck on the following error/problem when I am run the solver:

"failed lookup of turbulenceProperties (objectRegistry region0)
available objects of type turbulenceModel:

I have looked at other CFD-online posts but they unfortunately were not of much help in the end.

Just a note: The simulation runs when I remove the porous baffle and cyclic boundary conditions and change the faceType (for the cellZone and faceZone setup) in snappyHexMesh from baffle to internal.

I have attached my OpenFOAM case files using to two different archive formats for your convenience.

I would truly appreciate your input on the matter.
