Reading values of internal faces
 
Hello World.

I need to read the values on some internal faces.
I thought of interpolating the volume field to the surfaces with e.g.
surfaceScalarField s = fvc::interpolate(p)

After this step I want to read the center value of the surface field for a set of specific faces I declared in faceSet.

How can I access this information?

Thanks.

Check how large your surfaceScalarField is (ie, how many faces it has).
Access the ones you want.

I don't know the code!

Furthermore: how can I loop through I set of faces I selected with faceSet prior?

A faceSet is essentially a labelHashSet, you thus have all the usual methods as per HashSet. There are plently of places in the code that use some form of HashSet.
The command "git grep HashSet" is a quick way to find them all.

Hello World.

No that it comes to the implementation of this internal field reading stuff I'm experiencing strange errors with a very simple tryout.

This is the code:
Code:

    for (label i=startTime; i<endTime; i++)
    {

    runTime.setTime(Times[i], i);
        Info<< "Time = " << runTime.timeName() << endl;

    // Reading field  p
    volScalarField p
    (
        IOobject
        (
        "p",
        runTime.timeName(),
        mesh,
        IOobject::MUST_READ,
        IOobject::AUTO_WRITE
        ),
        mesh
    );

    //Create face values from field values
    surfaceScalarField ps = fvc::interpolate(p);
 
    Info<< "face value on face 61103"<< ps[61103]<< endl;
    }

which compiles smoothly. But when hitting the case this is the message:

FOAM aborting

Which looks very strange to me, as there is something about cyclic patches, which are not involved in this case...

Any ideas?

sega July 19, 2009 10:24

Stupid. There were cyclics involved. Who put them there? :mad:
Must have been me... :rolleyes:
Sorry.

So far it's working, but I bet I'm coming back ...
