Good afternoon,

I'm trying to use a combination of probes and surfaces (from libsampling) in my controlDict. However, I'm not able to get the surface section to work, here is what I have in the controlDict :

functions
(

.... probe stuff ...

S1
{
type surfaces;
functionObjectLibs ("libsampling.so");
surfaceFormat raw;
interpolationScheme cellPointFace;

fields
(
p
U
);

TestSection
{
type plane;
basePoint (0 -2.2175 0);
normalVector (0 1 0);
}
}
);

OF complains : keyword surfaces is undefined in dictionary "blablabla ... /system/controlDict::functions"

Any suggestion / idea ?

Thanks !

Hi,

I've tried this method on a couple different cases and cannot get the files to write. Using

type patch;
patchName floor;
triangulate false;

I can get surface data files to write, but when I switch to

type plane;
normalVector (0 1 0);
basePoint (0 0 0);

the time folders are written, but they are empty.

I've checked that the basePoint is inside the domain.
The format should be correct for the type patch to work. Is there a trick that I'm missing?

thanks for the help,

-Tim
