Getting DPMFoam from OpenFOAM's 2.2.x GitHub
 
Hey guys,

does somebody know if there is a opportunity to download a case there. I am interested in the following one

https://github.com/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM...am/Goldschmidt

i didnt find a opportunity to get it on my harddisk..or download it..actually i dont know how GitHub really works.

Thank you ;)


GOT IT!!!!! :)

there is another problem, which i dont understand really...

the solver "DPMFoam" does not work, when i execute it in the terminal as a command..

the error occurs: DPMFoam: Befehl nicht gefunden. (means: Command not found)

any idea...:(

Do you have the solver in your installation?

There's no DPMFoam solver in the source packs (version 2.2.2) available on openfoam.org, so I guess you have to follow http://openfoam.org/download/git.php to build OpenFOAM from git repository. Then you'll have DPMFoam and case files you'd like to use.

Thank you guys for your answers and attention.

Indeed my problem was my wrong thinking. I thought updating my OF 2.2.2 would provide me DPMFoam. But thats wrong, obviously.

After I installed OF 2.2.x from the Repository i also had the tutorial of Goldschmidt with the DPMFoam- Solver.

So thank you!

But there are still a few problems with the solver because it is not working. The main point of that error is that there are a few lines in the solver-code which dont work at all.

Is there somebody who has already worked with DPM-Foam? Succesfully??

Thank you guys! Thank you Lilla!

Greetings to all!

@sanjar: It would make it easier to help you if you had provided more specific information.
I say this because I've executed the tutorial "lagrangian/DPMFoam/Goldschmidt" without any problem, simply by running:
Code:

foamRunTutorials
Which basically will run blockMesh and DPMFoam and sends their output into the respective "log.*" files! :)

Best regards,
Bruno

If you have multiple versions of openfoam installed then it is advisable to have alias for each version and then 'activate' version 2.2.x before running the simulation.

hello guys, thank you for your attention.

@ wyldckat (Bruno):

my thoughts and detailled problems are described in the following thread as this one went a little bit out of focus concering its headline (but its not negative at all!! :) )

http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...calafield.html

thank your for your advice with the command foamRunTutorials. It worked for me fine too, that means i also generate log file for DPM-Foam and for the blockMesh.

The problem is, that after i copied this tutorial in my own foler, named "run" and after integrate my own geometry/mesh with fluent3DFluentToMesh into that case (i also checkd its functionality with checkMesh) i got the problems described in the thread i mentioned before (problem with phi etc).

@ vasava:

Thank you for your answer. Unfortunatley i am not that kind of an expert in OF and Linux, so i dont know how to create alias and how avtivate OF 2.2.x (though its OF 2.2.x is already wokring, because if not, i wouldnt get an error during its simulation).
I would be grateful if you would explain it to me.

Thank you guys for the upcoming answers!!

alias is a short name that you use for a command. Its like a hyperlink in windows. You can go through this link (http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...M-2.2.2/Ubuntu) for installing openfoam and this link (http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...nFOAM_versions) for alias.

Once you have made the alias (e.g. of222 for openfoam 2.2.2 and of22x for openfoam 2.2.x) then you can activate any version by of222+enter or of22x+enter.
