I created an fvPatchField for a mixing plane and now try to make it a bit more general. The idea is to have an fvPatchField for any scalar quantity (k,epsilon,omega,..) that are exchanged in the same way.
What I now need is to pick up the name of the patch that I'm actually on (the updateCoeffs() function). Something like:
word scalarQuantity = this.patch().name()
but like this I receive the name of the patch i have chosen in the boundary-file and not "p", "U","k",... or however the folders are called in the zero-directory.
Does anybody have any idea?
Thanks a lot
Are you looking for this:
Thanks a lot for your reply. Sadly I was not able to use your suggestion, I always got the error:
scalarQuantity not declared.
I solved the problem in a different way. First I defined a const protected word in the header file of my fvPatchField. The constructor then assigns it a word that I defined in the dictionary.
Have a nice evening
Perhaps you know this. I would like to use the lookupPatchField for and kind of Field (scalar, vector, tensor), like
const fvPatchField<Type>& typeValues =
The problem I have is that that it doesn't know a template form volField<Type>, it works fine if i use it for example for vector like
const fvPatchVectorField& vectorValues =
Do you have any idea how I should replace volVectorField?
Hi Peter, a volVectorField is actually a GeometricField, but it's templated on more than just Type. One of them is even a template template parameter.
