Hi,
I began to use Openfoam simulating a rough channel flow with turbulent model and oscillating velocity inlet. I wrote the file /0/U as follows. But when I run it, The wrong is like the following. Could you tell me how to deal with problem. Thank you.

It says that at line 36 it expects a scalar but is reading 'uniform'.

My guess is that the amplitude and frequency are all single scalars. Check the source code (finiteVolume/lnInclude/oscillatingFixedValueFvPatchField.*) to make sure is my advice.

Hi,Mattijs,

The velocity is a vector. Please tell me how to deal with the problem. Thanks.

Hello,

did you handle that problem? I am at the same point at the moment...
Would be great if someone could help finding a solution.

Regards,
Patrick

Hi,

amplitude is a scalar, try

...
inlet
{
type oscillatingFixedValue;
refValue uniform (1. 0 0);
amplitude 1.0;
frequency 100;
value uniform (0 0 0);
}

(You can find out what type is required in line 59ff of src/finiteVolume/fields/fvPatchFields/derived/oscillatingFixedValue/oscillatingF ixedValueFvPatchField.H)
