Hi All,

I am trying to run a transient simulation with icoFoam (OpenFoam.1.5). I get the following error message. I guess I am missing a very basic concept.

Thanks in advance
Senthil

Hi !

I didn't try timeVaryingUniformFixedValue in OF 1.5 but you should take a look to this file :

~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5/src/finiteVolume/fields/fvPatchFields/derived/timeVaryin gUniformFixedValue/timeVaryingUniformFixedValueFvPatchField.H

Regards,

Mathieu

Hi Masato,

Thanks for the input.

(
(t0 (ux0 uy0 uz0))
(t1 (ux1 uy1 uz1))
............
)

Format works for the velocity input. So we have decompose the velocity into corresponding components unlike OpenFOAM 1.4?

Thanks
Senthil

Hi Senthil,

I am not sure timeVaryingUniformFixedValue in OF-1.4.1 works for U.
