Hi friends,

I have changed the PDE models in simpleFoam and removed the turbulence part in the UEqn.H and I added: laplacian (nu, U) instead of that. When I start to run, it works, but after 50 steps (means first writeInterval which is 50), below error appears.
It means that? Also, I turned the RASmodel to laminar in constant/RASmodel. Even I put k and epsilon in my initial directory, still this error appears.

Thank you for your comments.

streamLine : seeded 0 particles.
[3] [1]

[1] --> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
[1] Cannot find field k
Valid scalar fields are:
3
(
pPrevIter
nu
p
)

Valid vector fields are:1(U)

[1] From function streamLine::execute()

It's interesting that if I change RASmodel to laminar in pitzDaily Tutorial and solve it with simpleFoam, the same error appears. So something is wrong with this solver?

Dear Reza
it relates to streamLine function which may address in controlDict, if you disable it, then it would run smoothly

Thank you very much
My controlDict is as usual, but just there is a extra part at the end !!! which is:
functions
{
streamLines
{
type streamLine;

// Where to load it from (if not already in solver)
functionObjectLibs ("libfieldFunctionObjects.so");

// Output every
outputControl outputTime;
// outputInterval 10;

setFormat vtk; //gnuplot;//xmgr;//raw;//jplot;//csv;//ensight;

// Velocity field to use for tracking.
UName U;

// Tracked forwards (+U) or backwards (-U)
trackForward true;

// Names of fields to sample. Should contain above velocity field!
fields (p k U);

// Steps particles can travel before being removed
lifeTime 10000;

// Number of steps per cell (estimate). Set to 1 to disable subcycling.
nSubCycle 5;

// Cloud name to use
cloudName particleTracks;

// Seeding method. See the sampleSets in sampleDict.
seedSampleSet uniform; //cloud;//triSurfaceMeshPointSet;

uniformCoeffs
{
type uniform;
axis x; //distance;

start (-0.0205 0.001 0.00001);
end (-0.0205 0.0251 0.00001);
nPoints 10;
}
}
}

I should remove all of that?

}
}
}
you just need to remove k :P, however if you dont need that function , you can easily remove all
