Hello,

I have a table containing the y+ u+ k+ and omega+ values for the kOmegaSST turbulence model and this table is stored in a txt file.
I want to modify the kOmegaSST.C and kOmegaSST.H to be able to load this file in the model (for example in a matrix) and take these values if need them. I'm studing a new way to impose the boundary condition but I'm quite new in programming in OpenFoam.
My main questions are:
-How could I initialize a matrix of scalar values?
-How could I load the file.txt and put its values in the matrix?
Any suggestions will be appreciate

Thank you very much
Best regards
Marco

File reading:

you can use<fstream> to read in files, like in standard c++

string line;ifstream myfile ("example.txt");
getline (myfile,line);

than convert to what ever you have.

Matrix of scalar values:

What exactly is it you expect to have? A scalarField, like p or a vector field like u?
Or a Matrix of size nxm?

Best Regards,
Jim

Thank you very much Jim!

Finally I solve the problem using IFstream as you suggest:

RectangularMatrix<doubleScalar> TABLE(IFstream("table.txt")());

that save the table in a matrix.
If someone is interested the file table.txt must have this shape

2 3
(
( 1 2 3)
( 4 5 6)
)

where in the first line 2 is the number of rows and 3 is the number of columns.
In this way we store the following matrix

[ 1 2 3
4 5 6]

Best Regards
Marco
