Hi,
I used turbFoam to simulate rough bed channel flow. But unluckly k and epsilon always blow up, So I want to check where they start to blow up and write k and epsilon before the running abnormaly end. Often the time is not the right writing time in controlDICT. Could you inform me how to del with this problem. Thank you. Kang 
Hi,
Please try this one.
Hi,
Please try this one. if ( runTime.value() > myOutputTime) { k.write(); epsilon.write(); } myOutputTime is a scalar defined by you. Best regards, Guanghao 
Sorry, the above is not correc
Sorry, the above is not correct. Please try this one.
if ( runTime.value() > myOutputTime) { turbulence>k()().write(); turbulence>epsilon()().write(); } Best regards, Guanghao 
Hi,Guanghao,
Thank you very
Hi,Guanghao,
Thank you very much. I will try and hope it is right. Regards, Kang 
Hi, Guanghao,
I don't know
Hi, Guanghao,
I don't know when the running will blow up if I only run once, so how can I defined the 'myOutputTime'? Thanks, Kang 
Hi, Kang
The 'turbulence
Hi, Kang
The 'turbulence>k()().write()' writes k every time step. So you can define 'myOutputTime' at anytime before the running blows up. If you really dont know when the running will blow up, you also can define 'myOutputTimes' as follows. scalar myOutputTime = runTime.startTime().value(); Best regards, Guanghao 
Hi,Guanghao,
Thanks.

Hi,Guanghao,
Thanks. I have an idea, but I don't know if it can solve the problem. The fowolling is my wrong information, and I found maybe the code will end if k or epsilon is more than a fixed value. If we know the end condition the code used, and add a if sentence in the code, maybe it is ok. But I can't find the condition. Could you inform me where I can look for it if you think that the method can work?

hi
Did you solve the problem? 
Hi,
I also would like to output some quantities not at the Openfoam's unified frequency. For example, I would like to output k each time step. When I add the folliowing line in rhoPimple solver: turbulence>k()().write() I found in each time step, the following equation is written out, instead of the data: sqr((((0.666667*tr(symm(grad(U))))+sqrt((sqr((0.666667*t r(symm(grad(U)))))+((4*(cedelta))*(((2*ck)*delta) *(dev(symm(grad(U)))&&symm(grad(U))))))))(2*(ced elta)))) What happen for this statement? Thank you very much. Anyone knows something about this issue?? h Quote:
