Dear all,

I am newbie with OpenFoam and I tried to work with snappyHexMesh to have a more complicated structure as simulation domain. As solver I wanted to use channelFoam.

I was able to generated a mesh with a simple STL and a corresponding box around the structure. Everything went fine until I wanted to start the solver.

The solver responds that
keyword simple_SimpleNW is undefined in dictionary "###SimpleSHM.wall/0/p::boundaryField"
but i have the keyword "simple_.*" within "0/p" and even if I change it to "simple_SimpleNW", the solver still complains. I tried a lot of different stuff, but was not able to solve my problem.

Perhaps anybody can help me! Attached you find the full case.

Best regards and thank you for the help

P.S.: Additionally it would be very interesting, if it is possible to have the sides with cyclic boundary conditions and if it is possible, how ;-)

I think this error is caused by the missing ";" in your p-file. It should be
    type       zeroGradient;
