Hi
I set a second order turbulence scheme with an error: Code:
divSchemes { default none; div(tauMC) Gauss linear; div(phi) Gauss linearUpwindV; div(phi,omega) Gauss upwind; div(phi,k) Gauss linearUpwind; div(phi,gas) Gauss limitedLimitedLinear 1 0 1; div(phi,epsilon) Gauss linearUpwind; } Code:

the question to me is, which version of OpenFoam you are using (the syntax is different in different versions) ? In OpenFoam 2.2.0 just do: Code:
divSchemes { default none; div(phi,U) bounded Gauss linearUpwindV grad(U); div(phi,k) bounded Gauss linearUpwind grad(k); div(phi,omega) bounded Gauss linearUpwind grad(omega); }

thanks Philip
yes,I use version 2.2.0 now I'm using rhoCentralFoam and it doesn't have a div(phi,U) in it. what to do with div(phi) instead? my case is unsteady and compressible. when we have to use bounded keyword?what conditions the problem should have? thanks.

Greetings to all!
@Ehsan: "bounded" is the default option that OpenFOAM 2.2 indicates it will use, if not present in the respective line. For more information on this characteristic, see section "4.4.2 Surface normal gradient schemes" on the User Guide. Personally, I have no clue when "bounded" or other methods should be used... But the descriptions shown in the User Guide seem selfexplanatory!? And as Phillip hinted, the problem you were having was the missing "grad(epsilon)": Code:
div(phi,epsilon) bounded Gauss linearUpwind grad(epsilon); Best regards, Bruno

thanks.
You mean 'bounded' is related to snGrad ?or may be different to that? I removed div(phi) without OF complaining. Then OF uses a default method for this term in rhoCentralFoam?

thanks.
so bounded schemes can be only used in steadystate runs as i have understood. many thanks.

Hi,
you can use the bounded scheme in non steadystate cases too. http://www.openfoam.org/version2.2.0/numerics.php The functionallity of that scheme is defined in the libOpenSmoke thread.

yes I forgot about that thread.but I yet don't know exactly when bounded scheme should be used.
my case is compressible and unsteady and haven't a convergence problem. then should I use bounded? the fvScheme I use is this,is it correct or which changes I have to do? Code:
fluxScheme Kurganov; ddtSchemes { default CrankNicolson .5; //ddt(rho) CrankNicolson .5; //ddt(rhoU) CrankNicolson .5; //ddt(rhoE) Euler; //ddt(rho,U) Euler; //ddt(rho,e) Euler; //ddt(rho,h) Euler; //ddt(rho,omega) Euler; //ddt(rho,k) Euler; //ddt(rho,gas) Euler; } gradSchemes { default none; grad(U) Gauss linear; grad(rho) Gauss linear; grad(rhoU) Gauss linear; grad((1psi)) Gauss linear; grad(e) Gauss linear; grad((1thermo:psi)) Gauss linear; grad(h) Gauss linear; grad(sqrt(((CpCv)*(1psi)))) Gauss linear; grad(sqrt(((CpCv)*(1thermo:psi)))) Gauss linear; grad(T) Gauss linear; grad(omega) cellMDLimited Gauss linear 1; grad(k) cellMDLimited Gauss linear 1; grad(gas) Gauss linear; grad(epsilon) Gauss linear; } divSchemes { default none; div(tauMC) Gauss linear; div(phi) bounded Gauss linearUpwindV; div(phi,omega) bounded Gauss linearUpwind grad(omega); div(phi,k) bounded Gauss linearUpwind grad(k); div(phi,gas) Gauss limitedLimitedLinear 1 0 1; div(phi,epsilon) bounded Gauss linearUpwind grad(epsilon); } laplacianSchemes { default none; laplacian(muEff,U) Gauss linear corrected; laplacian(alphaEff,e) Gauss linear corrected; laplacian(alpha,e) Gauss linear corrected; laplacian(k,T) Gauss linear corrected; laplacian(DepsilonEff,omega) Gauss linear corrected; laplacian(DkEff,k) Gauss linear corrected; laplacian(DomegaEff,omega) Gauss linear corrected; laplacian(alphaEff,h) Gauss linear corrected; laplacian(muEff,gas) Gauss linear corrected; laplacian(DepsilonEff,epsilon) Gauss linear corrected; } interpolationSchemes { default none; reconstruct(rho) vanLeer; reconstruct(U) vanLeerV; reconstruct(T) vanLeer; interpolate(rho) linear; interpolate(U) linear; interpolate(rhoU) linear; interpolate(muEff) linear; interpolate(tauMC) linear; } snGradSchemes { default none; snGrad(U) corrected; }

hi
can any one explian that what is the definition of bounded and unbounded schemes, e.g in this table for explain behaviour of interpolation schemes, which one is better, bounded or unbounded schemes? Table 4.10. Behaviour of interpolation schemes used in divSchemes linear : Second order, unbounded skewLinear : Second order, (more) unbounded, skewness correction cubicCorrected : Fourth order, unbounded upwind : First order, bounded linearUpwind : First/second order, bounded QUICK : First/second order, bounded TVD schemes : First/second order, bounded SFCD : Second order, bounded NVD schemes : First/second order, bounded

Hi Saeideh,
You can find some notions of what "bounded" is on the Programmers Guide: http://foam.sourceforge.net/docs/Gui...mmersGuide.pdf Some more mentions are here: http://www.cfdonline.com/Wiki/Appro...grids__Common From the following link  http://cfd.mace.manchester.ac.uk/twi...s/cfd1pt1.pdf  I quote: Quote:
