externalWallHeatFluxTemperature decompose error
 
Dear OpenFOAM developer,

In my chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam case, I have a boundary patch that uses externalWallHeatFluxTemperature.

in 0 folder, I have something like:
-------------------------------------------
bottomplatewall
{
type externalWallHeatFluxTemperature;
K solidThermo;
Ta uniform 343;
h uniform 3;
value uniform 303;
KName none;
}
*************************************

However, when I decompose the case, I got the following:
--------------------------------------------
bottomplatewall
{
type externalWallHeatFluxTemperature;
refValue uniform 303;
refGradient uniform 0;
valueFraction uniform 1;
value uniform 303;
K solidThermo;
KName none;
q uniform 0;
h uniform 3;
Ta uniform 343;
value uniform 303;
}
***************************************
I think, "q uniform 0;" should not be there. It is automatically inserted by OpenFOAM during decomposePar.

Greetings Pei,

By your description, I'm assuming you are using one of the official versions of OpenFOAM, possibly 2.1.0 or 2.1.x. Therefore, I suggest that you report this on the official bug tracker: http://www.openfoam.com/mantisbt/my_view_page.php

You might also want to indicate on which file exactly you have that boundary condition ;) At least I don't know on which one it should go, so I can't check this for myself either ...
Mmm... it might also be useful to provide them with a small test case, so they can replicate what you are seeing.

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi, Bruno,

Good point! Thanks. I will do that when I have the chance.
