Hello,

by "runnig" turbFoam it is incidental following error:

At present I dont understand effect of definition Parameters starttime, andtime and timestep. What is the ambition of time definition's? Which mistake of the fluid flow can I take whis a false definition of time window? ;)I'm a cfd beginner whis basics in fluid dynamics in academic studies.:rolleyes:

Hi Markus

Your simulation is crashing as you have specified 0 as either boundary conditions or as an internal initial value on the k or epsilon fields. These should be small but finite, e.g. 1e-11.

Hello,

thank's for the informations. I don't understand, what define always the "internal initial's"?

In turbFoam for air analysis whis wall's, air input and air output me interested allocation of "flow velocity" and allocation of
pressure. Which mistake's can I take by seting k and epsillon whis 1e-11?

What I mean is that you cannot have initialized k or epsilon to take the value 0 as an internal value nor a boundary value. It needs to have a finite value. The files are located in /0/.

Hello,

thank's for the information's. Is the internalField the "medium" or a "startcase" and the boundaryField the "wall, input Surface and output Surface" or other definition?

Under Fields [turbFoam, >>U, p, k, epsillon, R, nuTilda] for example are Name {internal Field Value - uniform} and {Name_Input - Parameters...}. Which effect's bring's seting's under {internal Field Value - uniform} uniform?

In the User Guid 2.1.1.2 in a example are set "internalField uniform 0;". What I define whis this seting?
