Hi to all,
I have a flow with Mach=0.3. I'm needing a steady state solver for compressible flow, but in the user guide there aren't any solver for steady state case. Can anyone help me?

Thanks Shaun. I have a problem. This solver is not present in FoamX and in the tutorials folder. I have to compile rhoSimpleFoam or I've done some errors in the installation procedure?

Hi,

I also want to know how I can set up the case by hand. Can somebody give me an example for this solver please.

you could also simple search the forum for "rhoSimpleFoam" and you will find some references to case setup.

I believe I can post the case setup tomorrow when at work.

Hi,

thanks, I think, I will try to change the case "rhoImplicitPorousSimpleFoam" solver to "rhoSimpleFoam".


In the forum I found this information:

"I have tried to create a FoamX configuration for rhoSimpleFoam. Just untar it under $FOAM_SOLVERS/rhoSimpleFoam which will give you the directory FoamX with all the files needed for your first steps with rhoSimpleFoam."

I also will try it out today. I hope it is working under version 1.4.1 :-)

Thanks a lot

Hi to all,
I set up a simple case to understand what rhoSimpleFoam. In the forum I found a discussion where they said that to set up the case I had work with rhoTurbFoam. So I set up the case with rhoTurbFoam and the I modified the fvSolution and fvSchemes dictionary with the corresponding file present in simpleFoam. When I run the case I receive this error message:

Just untar it under $FOAM_SOLVERS/compressible/rhoSimpleFoam which will give you the directory FoamX with all the files needed for your first steps with rhoSimpleFoam. I found it in this forum.

Hi,

can anybody send me the file that I have to untar in the $FOAM_SOLVERS/compressible/rhoSimpleFoam directory in order to use the rhoSimpleFoam solver in FoamX?
The file I found in the forum (rhoSimpleFoam_FoamX.tar.gz)is a .unk file... I don't know how to use it.
Or anybody can send me an example to compile correctly the files (fvSolution, fvSchemes...) with this solver?

Thanks

Hi Marco

I think you want to do something like that:
1- mv rhoSimpleFoam_FoamX.unk rhoSimpleFoam_FoamX.tar.gz
2- gunzip rhoSimpleFoam_FoamX.tar.gz
3- tar -xvf rhoSimpleFoam_FoamX.tar
and, I think you should get what you want
:o)

Hi Marco,

when you save the file, simply rename it rhoSimpleFoam_FoamX.tar.gz and you'll download the correct file. Then extract it and start to play http://www.cfd-online.com/OpenFOAM_D...part/happy.gif

Thanks Francesco and Cedric,
you are right. Now the solver is in FoamX but it gives error creating a new case! Probably there are some errors in the file.

I'm sorry but I'm new to OpenFoam...

Anyhow I've to study a compressible air flow in steady state. I started from rhoturbFoam solver and than I modified manually some files. When the simulation starts it plots this errors:

Hi,

maybe you have to change the fvScheme in "FoamX/defaults/system/" folder?

Hi Marco,

I think it could be a BC problem, can you tell us which is your set of BC? Which changes did you make in the code?

Hi Thomas,

FoamX doesn't work in spite of the change. Maybe other changes are necessary and I tried to do them, but nothing.... The error, when I create the new case, is this:

Thanks anyway

Hi Francesco,

maybe you are right, I modified the BC and the simulation starts but now it stops here:

This is my problem, I think it is not difficult to solve but I'm not able:

I have an air duct with an inlet section and an outlet section. The motion is produced by a delta p between the two sections. Flow is compressible, turbulent and steady.

These are some of the changes I made to modify rhoTurbFoam solver:
application rhoSimpleFoam (in contolDict file)
ddtSchemes steadyState (in fvSchemes file)
SIMPLE (in fvSolution file)

Honestly I don't know how to put all the BC at time 0 (R, k, epsilon?). Do you think the mistake is here? Or in the solution for p?

These are the BC I put:
U=0 on the wall, zeroGradient on inlet and outlet
p=fixedValue on inlet and outlet, zeroGradient on the wall
k, epsilon, R, T zeroGradient (and internalField ?)

Please can you help me?
Thanks
