Hello,

I am a new OpenFOAM user and I'm trying to simulate a flat plate using k-epsilon.
http://turbmodels.larc.nasa.gov/flatplate.html

When I type simpleFoam (from my simulation directory), I get the following error:

--> FOAM FATAL IO ERROR:
keyword epsilon is undefined in dictionary "/home/sebastian/OpenFOAM/sebastian-2.2.0/run/FlatPlates/FlatPlate273kep/system/fvSolution.solvers"

file: /home/sebastian/OpenFOAM/sebastian-2.2.0/run/FlatPlates/FlatPlate273kep/system/fvSolution.solvers from line 22 to line 49.

From function dictionary::subDict(const word& keyword) const
in file db/dictionary/dictionary.C at line 608.

FOAM exiting


I tried adding epsilon to the transportProperties file as
epsilon epsilon [0 2 -3 0 0 0 0] 1;

I also added the corresponding schemes to fvSchemes to alleviate previous errors:
grad(epsilon) Gauss linear;
div(phi,epsilon) bounded Gauss linear grad(epsilon);
laplacian(DepsilonEff,epsilon) Gauss linear corrected;


but it still doesn't solve the problem... Can someone please explain why I'm getting the fatal error and perhaps suggest a way to fix it?

Thanks!

My coworker fixed it.
All I had to do was copy the fvSchemes and fvSolution files from the pitzDaily tutorial...
