timeVaryingMappedFixedValue
 
hi,

I am using simpleFoam k-e model. I want to use the data from the experiment for the inlet velocity, inlet k and inlet epsilon. As I understand I should do like the tutorial pitzDailyExptInlet:

constant/boundaryData/inlet/points defines the points where the experiments data are collected. And constant/boundaryData/inlet/points/0/ gives the corresponding value for U, k, epsilon.

my first question is :
If my experiment data for U are collected at different points as those data for k and epsilon, how should i edit "constant/boundaryData/inlet/points"

----------------------------------------------------------------------
What I did till now is to leave the k and epsilon to be uniform fixed value and just give U in constant/boundaryData/inlet/points/0/. I got the following error when I run the case:

// * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * //
Create time

Create mesh for time = 0

Reading field p

Reading field U

In my case the number of experiment data is less than the number of grid points. But I don't think this is a problem.


Any suggestion is welcome.
Thanks

I have worked with timeVaryingMappedFixedValue and have seen this error many times. I suggest you switch on the Debug Flag for timeVaryingMappedFixedValue and post the result of a similar run here.

These errors are often related to the distribution of your points.

Thanks Sebastian. where can I switch the debug flag on?

You have to switch the debug flag inside the "global" controlDict file.
It is located in ~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.x/etc/controlDict

I'm currently not working in my Linux environment, so I can't tell you exactly how this file looks like, but you should search for the entry timeVaryingMappedFixedValue and change the following 0 to 1 for switching on the debug flag.

If you then run the case you will get some more detailed error description.
Simply post the result here and we will have a look into it.
