I know this thread is old, but I'm encountering the same problem with OpenFoam Version 1.6. It's the rhoSonicFoam as well and it happens when calling
fvm::div(phiv, rho);

The error message is the same, I'll post it anyway:

request for surfaceScalarField phi from objectRegistry region0 failed
available objects of type surfaceScalarField are

4
(
phiv
limitedLinearLimiter(rho)
differenceFactors_
weightingFactors
)

I looked through all my files. There is never a phi used, only phiv. It still works well on the shockTube tutorial, but not on my case and I don't know, what I'm doing wrong.

Ruehri June 20, 2010 05:57

Although this thread may seem a little bit old I think it might help if I share my thoughts on this. I found an error in my BC when using waveTransmissive, which uses the field phi, whereas rhoSonicFoam uses phiv.

A simple workaround was for me to simply recompile the solver for using phi (changing every phiv to phi). It might be possible to change waveTransmissive to use phiv, but I didn't try that.

LaplacianFoam
 
As none of the members above could get an answer and as I am pretty much in the same situation, I'm digging out (don't know if it's valuable in English ^^) this thread.

I have trouble with a laplacianFoam simulation where I got this Error message when running:
Code:

--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:

    request for surfaceScalarField phi from objectRegistry region0 failed

Maybe people from previous posts have found out where the problem is located

Thank you for your time :)

[Edit]: I already tried to replace in fvSchemes "phi" by "DT" (DT defined in transportProperties) but still

Three year old thread but hey, it doesn't hurt to post a fix, right?

Create a phi initial and boundary conditions file in folder 0/ and you're set. I haven't figured out why bubbleFoam doesn't create phi automatically as it is supposed to and does in most cases but if you create the file for it everything runs smoothly.

Hi,

I got a similar problem when trying to run potentialFoam. I have tried to apply Ziad suggestion by creating phi initial and boundary conditions file in folder 0/. However, it doesn't work and the terminal window displays the following:

As in my case the error message says "phiHbyA" rather than "phi", I also made a file for "phiHbyA" in 0/ folder. But it still can't work and the error message I receive is always the same.

Any idea on how to fix this? I'll appreciate that so much.

solution
 
In case of airfoil, rhoSonicFoam doesn't support BC such as waveTransmissive. It includes manipulation with phi field.

Good luck.

phiHbyA is computed by the code during the solution procedure. It is not a variable like U or p or phi. Not familiar with potentialFoam but can you post more info? What are you trying to simulate?

The proper fix for this problem in bubbleFoam (and twoPhaseEulerFoam by proxy) is to make sure you have the following two lines in createFields.H between the part where you create your velocity fields and the part where you use phi for the first time.

Code:

    #include "createPhia.H"
    #include "createPhib.H"

In these header files phi will be computed based on U or read if already created from a previous iteration. Of course you'll also need these two header files as well. Single phase codes will probably use something like "createPhi.H". After this no need to create phi files in the time folders.

Code:
