Which patch type for domain inlet? wall?
4 Attachment(s)

I want optimize hydrofoils using a "watertunnel" domain.

The domain has a symmetry mirror plane so only one wing gets calculated.

The case setup is based on the motorBike case. The turbulence model is kOmegaSST, suitable for lowRe (the hydrofoils operate in a Re range between 300.000 and 2.000.000).

Running simpleFoam leads to the following error:

[2] Invalid wall function specification
Patch type for patch minX_inlet must be wall
Current patch type is patch


Find attached the log file.

Is the domain inlet really a patch of type wall?

Find attached the related files (boundary...).
