Hi,

I need to share an array between icoFoam.C and timeVaryingUniformFixedValueFvPathfields.C so that both the codes can update the array during the run.

Any Suggestions?

Cheers!

Use a volScalarField (= list of scalars). This gets registered on the database which you can access from any boundary condition. See e.g. pressureInletVelocityFvPatchVectorField.C which gets phi from the database. (is surfaceScalarField but the principle is the same)

Hi Mattijs,

Thanks for the help! I was able to create a volScalarField (using createFields.H) basically a replica of -case directory-/0/p file. Not sure if this is the right way! I have modified the TimeVaryingUniformFixedValueFvPathField.H and .C so that it can see the new volScalarField. Success ends here! I am not sure how to write into (neither read from) the database (say the pressure value for a particluar patch into the new volScalarField) both in TimeVaryingUniformFixedValueFvPathFields.C as well as icoFoam.C. I know the new field is availble at both places.

Thanks in Advance

Senthil
