Hello,

I'm still quite new to OpenFOAM. Maybe someone can help me? I'm making a variation on the interFoam solver. I'd like to use the nHatfv variable calculated in the interfaceProperties.C code. This information is private, however. Is there a way to access this yet, or must I simply rewrite the portion of the code to get what I want?

Thanks!

Robert

Not legally. The only way involves "#define class struct","#define private protected" before the include and most of the time that doesn't work.

So rewrite the model or make a bug-report requesting that variable to be moved to the protected stuff

There is a public function interfaceProperties::nHatf (). Can it be of any help?

That "only" gives you back a const reference so officially you can't modify the field. There is a workaround ... but you havn't got this from me and don't ask further .... google for const_cast
