Motorbike Tutorial
Hello everyone.

I'm a new member so I apologise for my ignorance.

I've been working through the tutorials and decided to attempt the motobike tutorial.

I manage to generate the mesh using blockmesh, snappyHexMesh.

I still am unable to see the bike in paraFoam even after searching through the various threads. Someone mentioned reduce the xmin and ymax but I wasnt able to locate these options. Thoughts? Should I continue to suffer for a right of passage?

It appears that this tutorial contains boundary conditions so I assumed I could run icoFoam or simpleFoam to obtain a solution. Is this correct.

In attemp to run icoFoam and simpleFoam is closes by saying the following:

Create time

Create mesh for time = 3

Reading transportProperties

Reading field p

cannot open file

file: /home/adam/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6.x/tutorials/incompressible/simpleFoam/motorBike/3/p at line 0.

From function regIOobject::readStream()
in file db/regIOobject/regIOobjectRead.C at line 62.

FOAM exiting

I looked at the "3" folder which I believe is the final mesh folder and was not able to locate "p at line 0"

Thanks everyone for the help.
