Hello All,

In a recent attempt to implement a tensor based viscosity field I ran into a problem with taking a Laplacian involving two volTensorFields. To perform some more simplified testing I altered laplacianFoam with the following:

Code:
        for (int nonOrth=0; nonOrth<=nNonOrthCorr; nonOrth++)
        {
            solve
            (
                fvm::ddt(tau) - fvm::laplacian(dTau, tau)
            );
        }
where dTau and tau are both volTensorFields. I get a segfault within the HashTable lib. Below is the stack trace I get from my development code which is a little more comprehensive than the one that laplacianFoam gives me but crashes at the same point.

Code:
#0  0x00007ffff76e8850 in Foam::HashTable<Foam::tmp<Foam::fv::laplacianScheme<Foam::Vector<double>, Foam::Tensor<double> > > (*)(Foam::fvMesh const&, Foam::Istream&), Foam::word, Foam::string::hash>::find (this=0x0, key=...) at /home/kmooney/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6-ext/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/HashTable.C:177

#7  0x000000000041bbf1 in main ()
I'm a tad confused because the code compiles just fine and the Programmer's Guide says that those fields are accepted by FOAM in both implicit and explicit laplacian schemes. Also note that this error occurs even if all of the tensor fields are zeros. Does anyone have any idea as to why this is happening? Thanks a lot for any insight you guys might have for me.

Maybe this bugreport can help you out, which is very similar:
http://www.openfoam.com/mantisbt/view.php?id=305
Maybe for the solution you have to look in the same direction.

FYI: bugs should be reported on the bug tracker, so that developers can see them.

Perfect!

Thanks a lot Bernhard and Alberto.

I didn't post it to the bug tracker outright because I figured I was doing something wrong.

It appears that Henry W. fixed it in 2.0.x but the fix hasn't been propagated to the extend branch. I'll post a bug report on it now. I fixed it locally in 1.6-ext in the same manner that Henry did with no issues.

Hello all! Just to let everybody know (although the thread is quite old already and this problem does not arise in newer versions of OF):
The solution of henry posted here
http://www.openfoam.com/mantisbt/view.php?id=305
worked for me too

Problem:
Wanted to use the LRR-RSTM with the originally commented diffusion term in OF-1.6 (src/turbulenceModels/compressible/RAS/LRR/LRR.C)
Code:
- fvm::laplacian(Ceps_*rho_*(k_/epsilon_)*R_, epsilon_)
which compiles but gives a runtime error

Solution:
add the line
Code:
makeFvLaplacianTypeScheme(SS, symmTensor, symmTensor)    \
to laplacianScheme.H in
src/finiteVolume/finiteVolume/laplacianSchemes/laplacianScheme/

recompile the finiteVolume library and that's it!

The only strange thing which I could not resolve until now is, that it works fine in serial with Gauss linearUpwind scheme for divSchemes but not in parallel. In parallel I had to change the divSchemes to Gauss Gamma

Thanks for the extra info on the div schemes! The fact that some schemes aren't functioning in parallel for this is suspicious.

cheers!

Greetings to all!

@Johannes: Can you provide a simple test case?
And which OpenFOAM version/variant are you using?

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi! Hello Bruno!

I use OpenFOAM-1.6.

Well, with respect to a simple test case, actually I did not try this on a simple case. My case is a stationary flame (so not that simple). I think one can reproduce this problem with any simple case using the LRR model, but with the diffusion term that originally is commented in OF-1.6
Code:
- fvm::laplacian(Ceps_*rho_*(k_/epsilon_)*R_, epsilon_)
instead of the "default" diffusion term
Code:
- fvm::laplacian(DepsilonEff(), epsilon_)
Concerning the mentioned problems with the diffSchemes, without having detailed knowledge in this topic, maybe it has something to do with
Code:
 tmp<surfaceInterpolationScheme<GType> > tinterpGammaScheme_;
 tmp<snGradScheme<Type> > tsnGradScheme_;
in laplacianScheme.H.

It seems that I just used the wrong schemes. But as I sad, in this topic I'm not an expert.
