Hi all, I have some questio
I have some questions about the files generated by foamLog. In a rhoTurbFoam case I generated "logs" directory, there I can find some unknown files. So,
1) What's the difference between a name_0 file to a name_1 file?
2) Why there are 3 rho files? (rho_0, rho_1, rho_2)
3) What's the difference between contCumulative, contGlobal and contLocal?
Thanks a lot!

U_0 and the other *_0 fields are the old time values (i.e. timestep previous to U). They are necessary to restart calculations that use second order accurate schemes in time like Crank-Nicholson.

time step continuity errors :
sum local = 1.05535e-08, global = 1.65393e-14, cumulative = -9.944e-11
What exactly do you mean by converging the pressure more tightly?

This does not worry me at all: it says your global continuity error is 1e-14, which is the double precision round-off error, the sum local tells me that in the line above your pressure solver has converged to about 1e-8; in other words, all is well.
Nothing to worry about here.

The foamLog script filters the
The foamLog script filters the provided log file. It just scans for certain patterns and the first occurrence for that becomes '_0', the second '_1' etc. so if your solver solves multiple times for e.g. p in one timestep they are kept separate.
The patterns it uses are defined in the foamLog.db file in the same directory as the foamLog script. If it is missing some feel free to extend it for other solvers/linear solvers and send me a copy.
Thanks a lot Mattijs for your
Thanks a lot Mattijs for your perfect clarification!
I'll see foamLog.db to know better foamLog's behaviour.
I want to write some global re
I want to write some global results in the logSummary file. For example for O2 concentration I write in the code:
<< sum(Y*mesh.V())/sum(mesh.V()) << tab
and I obtain as output
(sum((O2*V))|sum(V)) [0 0 0 0 0 0 0] 0.233233
for each timestep.
How could I get just the value, just 0.233233?
Easy: << sum(Y*mesh.V())/su
<< sum(Y*mesh.V())/sum(mesh.V()).value() << tab
Sorry for digging but I have some question regarding to foamLog.
I have written new variable to logSummary. Once the job is finished and I type foamLog, log directory is created but my new variable is not present there.
Should I modify somehow foamLog code to make it possible?
I am using OF 1.5
thanks for reply!
Ok,I have sorted this by modifying foamLog.db
