I am trying to analyze an outdoor airflow I get this error while trying to use blockMesh:
1. Solution exception: --> snappyHexMesh Failed! --> FOAM FATAL ERROR: Cannot find file "points" in directory "polyMesh" in times 0 down to constant From function Foam::word Foam::Time::findInstance(const Foam::fileName&, const Foam::word&, Foam::IOobject::readOption, const Foam::word&) const in file db/Time/findInstance.C at line 202. FOAM exiting
is there a way to fix this?
any help would be appreciated…
Update: After playing for a while I found out that if I rescale the geometry to half of its size the wind tunnel works. Does butterfly(BF) have a height limit? BF could not create the case (blockMesh) for original geometry with 300 meters height. i was able to do the analysis through rescaling the geometry to half.
