    Hi Baris,

    While i am executing the simpleFoam/icoFoam for this case, i am facing this issue.

    /*
    –> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
    Cannot find file “points” in directory “polyMesh” in times “0” down to constant

    From function virtual Foam::IOobject Foam::fileOperation::findInstance(const Foam::IOobject&, Foam::scalar, const Foam::word&) const
    in file global/fileOperations/fileOperation/fileOperation.C at line 871.
    */

    Is this reason of not making of meshing?

    Regards,
    Tushar Pandey

    Hi Tushar,

    It says that cant find points file under constant/polyMesh folder. Please check it inside test case where you run these simpleFoam/icoFoam solvers.

    For your info.

    Best.

    Hi Tushar,

    Go to the constant/polyMesh folder under of your test-case and only run “ls” command to see what kind of files are available under of it.

      Hi Baris,

      Under the constant folder,

      /*
      tushar@tushar-VirtualBox:~/OpenFOAM/tushar-7/run/nacaAirfoil$ ls
      0 Allclean Allrun constant prostar Running_Notes system
      tushar@tushar-VirtualBox:~/OpenFOAM/tushar-7/run/nacaAirfoil$ ls constant
      thermophysicalProperties turbulenceProperties
      */

      No meshing file folder.

    Hi Baris,

    Is this right procedure to copy/paste the blockMeshDict file folder from motorBike case to nacaAirfoil case?

    Hi Tushar,

    It seems that you didnt create the mesh. please follow ./Allrun file step by step and first create your mesh. Because you dont have mesh for simulation.

    For your info.

    Barış.
