Using liquidMixtureProperties
I would like to use the water properties functions offered by the liquidMixtureProperties class, specifically, I want to calculate the mixture density in a sprayFoam calculation. The density function requires the pressure, temperature, and mole fraction ( http://foam.sourceforge.net/docs/cpp...b69ac33c0e3962). The problem for me seems to be in passing the mole fraction in the correct format. Here is the code that I've placed in sprayFoam.C:
Code:
const scalar pc = p[cellI];
const scalar Tc = T[cellI];
const scalarField& Y_(Y[0]);
// Find the mole fraction, given the mass fraction
const scalarField X_ = slgThermo.liquids().X(Y_);
const scalar rho_ = slgThermo.liquids().rho(pc, Tc, X_);
The code compiles, but fails in the line that defines X_. It steps into the X function of liquidMixtureProperties with a Y which has a size of 4000 (number of cells in my mesh), which causes a failure on the second iteration. It looks like the X function can only handle a Y of size 1, but I don't understand why, or how to supply a Y of size 1. I have also tried,
Code:
const scalarField& Y_(Y[0][0]);
but this fails to compile with the following error message,
Quote:
error: invalid initialization of reference of type 'const FOAM::scalarField&' from expression of type 'double'

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
