building MRFSimpleFoam
Hi everybody.
I continue here another thread because a user defined my problem, so this is the right forum section.
I installed OpenFOAM-1.5-dev from CAE Team PPA and I want to use MRFSimpleFoam. I was explained I have to build it into MRFSimpleFoam tutorial folder. I found /usr/share/doc/openfoam-dev-1.5/examples/MRFSimpleFoam/MRFSimpleFoam. It contains a subdirectory Make (with files and options files) and two files: MRFSimpleFoam.C and createFields.H. I tried wmake but it fails (not found). Maybe I have to run make?
I use Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit.

Hi Maurizio,

Here's what you do:

cp -r $FOAM_TUTORIALS/MRFSimpleFoam/MRFSimpleFoam .
cd MRFSimpleFoam

And voilá, ready to be used. Note: I installed both the "openfoam-dev-1.5" and "openfoam-dev-1.5-dev" packages! Possibly you only installed the first one. Here is how you can install the second:

sudo apt-get install openfoam-dev-1.5-dev
Best regards,
