pyFoamPotentialRunner error
 
Hi Foamers,

I am trying to initialize my solution with potentialFoam to use it as input to simpleFoam. For that purpose, I use pyFoamPotentialRunner.py. I get this error:

All kind of help (ideas, tutorials, links...) will be really much apreciated. The beginnings are always hard...

The problem is with one of the function-objects in your controlDict. Somehow it doesn't work inside of potentialFoam. So the best thing would be to disable the functionObjects as long as you run potentialFoam (for instance by renaming the functions-entry in the controlDict) and afterwards reinstate it

pyFoamPotentialRunner.py only runs potentialFoam. The actual solver has to be run separately (pyFoam has no way of telling which is the "real" solver).

For a tutorial on PyFoam see the first part of the training presentation at this years workshop (it is linked from the PyFoam-page on the Wiki). Mind: there is no example on pyFoamPotentialRunner.py in that

Hi Bernhard,

First of all, thanks for your fast reply. I am not sure if I am understanding. I post my controlDIct file:

I can't see any function-entry in the file. Do you refer at the controlDict of my case or in the generic source code of controlDict?What's the path to this file?
And other question, how can I tell OF to take the potentialFoam solution as initial solution for simpleFoam?

Thanks in advance for suggestions!

After I wrote the posting I checked it (because I got an idea for a feature to add). The problem is that the utility uses stuff from the potentialFoam-tutorial as a "template" and temporarily copies it into the case. Since 2.0 that tutorial has a functionObject and THAT functionObject is causing the problem.

Strange as it may seem: do exactly the opposite of what I said before. Add an empty list of functionObjects to the controlDict. Something like
Code:

functions
{
}

That should replace the tutorial FOs

simpleFoam is extremely simple-minded (like all OF-solvers). Whatever U it finds in the 0-directory it uses as the initial condition. So if 0/U was generated by potentialFoam it uses that. You don'T have to tell it anything

Tensian July 3, 2013 12:58

Thanks Bernhard, now it Works!
But I think this is not a good initial solution for my simpleFoam simulation. Do you know why pressure driven flows explodes when specifying a fixedValue both on inlet and outlet?

Anyway thank you so much, I have learned how to use pyFoamPotentialRunner, so this is great!

Congratulations for your knowledge and thanks for share it!
