Simulating diffusion flames with fireFoam
Dear Buddies
I want to simulate a diffusion flame with fireFoam. Does any body has any tutorial about this issue?
I would be very pleased if an experienced buddy help me on this object.

more informations from my work
Dear Buddies
I have simulated diffusion flames with reactingFoam earlier. However now I want to simulate them with firefoams using FSD combustion model. I have looked into firefoam tutorials about poolfires. when I start my simulation, I got this error message:

Create time

Create mesh for time = 0.0522381

Reading g
Creating combustion model

Selecting combustion model FSD<psiCombustionModel,gasThermoPhysics>
Selecting thermodynamics package hsPsiMixtureThermo<reactingMixture<gasThermoPhysic s>>
Selecting chemistryReader foamChemistryReader
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::bad_cast'
what(): std::bad_cast

I even deleted the chemistry properties file, made the chemistry solver off,modified the reactions file and the combustion model, Nevertheless I still get this error. I would be very please if an experienced fireFoam man help me.:)
